Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.
Wax removal is currently available via the primary care audiology service for patients of the following surgeries :
Patients registered with these surgeries can make an appointment by contacting their GP surgery.
Unfortunately, the hospital-based audiology service is unable to carry out wax removal.
Drops and sprays to aid self management of ear wax are available at local supermarkets and pharmacies.
