Due to Covid we presently cannot offer this service but have the following advice:
Earwax usually falls out on its own. If it does not and blocks the ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in the ear twice a day for a few days.
Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of the ear, especially at night when lying down.
Patients can also see a pharmacist who can offer advice and treatment
If you want ear syringing or ear suction then this can be done privately.
If you are worried the ear is infected then please contact the Practice
