Ear Care Clinic
Wax is produced by the ears as a way to protect them by keeping them clean and free of germs. It usually passes out of the ears naturally, but sometimes too much can build up and block the ear canal. The most common causes of excess ear wax are attempts at home removal, frequent use of earphones and advanced age.
If your ears become blocked by wax, it can affect your hearing and be uncomfortable. If this is the case, then the safest and most effective option is microsuction clearance. This is a quick and painless procedure where a small device is used to vacuum the wax from your ear. To minimise any risks, this is done while looking down a microscope.
Our Nurses have undergone specialist training in the microsuction procedure and are also trained to recognise infections and conditions that affect the ear. Ear cleansing with microsuction will be offered as a first-line treatment but other methods may be deemed more suitable, or a combination of methods may be used.
Audiograms, to screen hearing, are now also available in the clinic.
Patients do not need to see a GP first. It is possible to self-refer to this service.
Joint Care offers both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided injections.
