Appointments for ear syringing due to earwax build-up are available with our Practice Nurses but often this is an issue that can be dealt with at home.
If you do need an appointment please use eardrops or drops of almond, olive or baby oil into the affected ear up to 7 days prior to syringing. This will soften the wax and make it easier to remove.
As an alternative to making an appointment to see one of our clinicians, you may wish to consider managing the problem yourself at home.
More information is available in the lealet below on how to manage the problem yourself.
