Earwax removal


Ears and hearing aids benefit from regular earwax removal, which is why we added this procedure to our portfolio of services. Whilst earwax has a number of positive functions, it can sometimes block the ear canal and lead to pain or temporary hearing loss. Earwax is very dense and can also cause havoc with hearing aids. If left unchecked, it could lead to whistling and feedback noises, and lesser quality of sound from your hearing aids.
Many GP surgeries and medical centres have over recent years begun declining the removal of earwax and this situation has not been helped by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At The Hearing Care Centre we offer treatment, without the need for a GP referral, in a relaxed atmosphere, following stringent safety guidelines allowing sufficient time with all our patients to remove wax, in a safe and gentle way using either microsuction or irrigation methods. We also offer an on-screen video image of the wax in the ear and the cleared ear after treatment.

Currently we are offering this service from our flagship Ipswich practice, as well as in BungayBury St Edmunds, Eye, Felixstowe, Hethersett, HadleighStowmarketThetford, Wickham Market and Woodbridge

Treatment costs £80.

If it is found that you do not have sufficient earwax to be removed, then there will be a charge of just £30 to cover the appointment time.
