The OriginalEarwax Clinic

About us

Our Ear Wax Removal clinic is owned and operated by a General Practitioner with 30 years of experience. We take a holistic approach to all of our patients. You cannot treat a symptom or presentation in isolation.

In the Primary Care or Community setting it is the remit of the General Practitioner to assess issues associated with the ear, nose and throat.

Unfortunately, some services have been shed by GPs and can only by accessed through the private sector now.

Ear wax removal was removed from the GP Service Contract in Sept 2021.  However, if you have any hearing issues, pain in your ears, balance issues or tinnitus your first port of call should be your GP.

All of the above symptoms can simply be caused by ear wax, but ear wax should not be looked at in isolation. So you should try to see your NHS GP first if you are able to do so.

For a full and thorough service it is best to attend an earwax clinic operated by a GP.

We would take a relevant history, carry out an appropriate examination and provide the most appropriate treatment tailored to your individual needs.
