Ear Microsuction Service
Medical developments with regard to wax removal from ear canals are resulting in an increasing number of GP surgeries moving away from offering ear syringing in favour of microsuction.
New microsuction procedures show that this is a superior way of removing wax from ears and doesn’t require pressurised water syringing or the use of messy oils. In line with this, and in order to prioritise our basic health care services, we will no longer be offering ear syringing at SHC.
Patients can be referred for ear microsuction by the practice and the service is provided on-site by Hearology.
The Hearology service is now free to registered patients. Patients referred for ear microsuction can book an appointment direct with Hearology - the booking number is available from Reception.
