What can I expect from my appointment?
Rest assured that our specially trained clinicians will use the safest method of wax removal to help you hear again.
o Your wax removal appointment will take around 30-60 mins. While we adjust to new social distancing guidance, it would be really helpful if you could attend your appointment alone.
o After asking a few questions to get a better understanding of the health of your ears, our clinician will examine your ear canals and ear drums by using an otoscope (magnifier with a light). They will record this information to help keep track of any changes in your ear over time.
o We’ll then talk you through the procedure and show you the equipment that will be used and explain how it works. You’ll need to sign a consent form before we remove any wax from your ears.
o Once you are happy to go ahead, our clinician will use the irrigation equipment to gently remove any wax that’s in your ear.
o After our clinician has performed the procedure, they will then check the health of your ears and record this information.
o If we are unsuccessful in removing any wax, we’ll advise you on your next steps.
