Self Treatment for a build up of ear wax is often safe and effective. Please read and follow the guidance in out Ear Wax Self Treatment leaflet for at least 7 days before booking an appointment with a Practice Nurse.
If the self treatment continues to be ineffective or you do not meet the criteria for Ear Wax self care please book an appointment in the usual way. Ear Syringing appointments last approximately 15 minutes per ear, please inform the receptionist if you will need both ears syringed.
