Ear Irrigation

In line with advice from the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) and best practice, Constable Country Medical Practice no longer provides appointment for ear syringing to its patients. 

Ear syringing is no longer considered to be the first line of treatment for the clearing of ear wax and it is not a funded service within the NHS for general practice.

Current guidelines are that ear drops should be used to soften the wax which will then enable the natural movement of the wax from the ear. Further information and treatment options are available on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/earwax-build-up/

If you would like to see a private audiologist, we have Graeme Sly from Micro Technology Ltd who see's patients at our practice in East Bergholt.
