Is your hearing being affected by ear wax?

Hearing loss, pain or discomfort in your ear may be signs of ear wax build-up. Ear wax can be relatively innocuous, but in some cases it can have a real impact on your quality of life.

Having problematic ear wax removed is an important part of your ear health, and overall wellbeing.

An estimated 2.3 million people in the UK suffer with ear wax problems annually1. This figure is probably higher since many ignore ear wax problems and it is more likely to affect older adults.

How much is an earwax removal? 

Prices start from £60, for both ears. We recommend using Earol® for 3–5 days before your appointment. This olive oil based spray will help soften the wax, making it easier to remove.

Please phone 0800 740 8286 if you need to rearrange your appointment. To cancel, you must give us at least two clear working days’ notice, otherwise your appointment will be non-refundable.

How can I get my ear wax removed?

If you are suffering with ear problems, a simple procedure to have your wax removed could improve your hearing ability almost immediately.

We use a micro-suction procedure. This painless technique doesn’t require any water being squirted into your ear, like some other methods. It involves a low-pressure suction probe being inserted into the ear which will remove excess wax and debris. This latest technology means your ear wax removal will be quick and effective.

We specialise in safe, quick and comfortable micro-suction ear wax removal.

Request an appointment today and one of our highly trained hearing specialists can help. They will remove your ear wax, improving your hearing.

Can my GP remove my ear wax?

In September 2020, a government minister confirmed that the NHS would no longer be offering ear wax removal as a core service. This means that you might not be able to get your ear wax removed at your local GP surgery, even if you used to in the past. We offer ear wax removal as an alternative, private service.
