We are now pleased to announce that our ear irrigation service has been reinstated after a brief break.
We want to ensure that patients who feel they should have their ears syringed are fully informed of all the risks involved and know how to prepare adequately for their appointment. We have therefore compiled an information leaflet about ear wax and combined this with a consent form (see attached).
Anyone wishing to have their ears syringed should read this leaflet, follow the guidelines and complete the checklist about suitability for an appointment. There are certain circumstances where it is not suitable to perform ear syringing. However, if an appointment is required, patients should contact the surgery to book an appointment with the relevant clinician*
*Patients who have previously had their ears syringed can book an appointment with either Sarah Bailey, Practice Nurse or Anna Treherne, Health Care Assistant.
*Patients who have never had their ears syringed before should book an appointment with Sarah Bailey.
*Due to demand for general nurse appointments and access to the ear irrigator we are not able to book ear syringing appointments with the other nurses at the moment.
The completed form should be brought along to the appointment.Ear Wax information and ear syringe consent form
