Ear Syringing

During the height of the COVID-19 emergency we were advised to cancel our ear irrigation clinics, we are sorry for any inconvenience. We have decided that ear irrigation clinics will be restarting from Friday 31st July however, all patients will need to book an initial telephone call with our nurses first so we can discuss your need for ear irrigation with you and discuss possible alternative treatments.

Portcullis Surgery is committed to providing best practice, high-quality medical care.

Ear irrigation is no longer considered to be the 1st line treatment for the clearing of ear wax and thus is not recommended for routine use by NHS in General Practice.

Your pharmacist can help with earwax build-up. They can give advice and suggest the treatment.

We have also prepared a useful leaflet on alternative treatments that you can download from our website.

Please note we will always prioritise all patients who have been referred for an audiology appointment for hearing loss and will usually ask for a copy of your letter with an audiology appointment.

Therefore if you do not have an audiology appointment you may have to wait some weeks for the next available routine ear irrigation appointment.
