Ear Irrigation

We no longer provide ear irrigation for removal of earwax (ear irrigation/ear syringing). Ear irrigation is not funded by the NHS.

What you can do:-

  • Apply warm olive oil drops into your ears for 7 to 10 days.
  • If this doesn’t help, seek advice about treatment options available from your local pharmacy.
  • Never use cotton buds, stick your finger in your ear or use other objects in an attempt to remove earwax, because you can impact the wax further or can cause injury to your eardrum. Sometimes wearing earplugs or hearing aids can cause earwax to be impacted.
  • If you are suffering from pain, have a high temperature or have discharge from your ear, you should seek advice from your GP because you may have an infection.

If you feel that you need your ears irrigated, there are several private providers available. It is a private service so there is a charge and the charges vary. Some local providers are listed below. The list is not meant to be exhaustive or definitive nor does it represent either a guarantee of competence or endorsement by Bodriggy Health Centre. Patients are advised to make their own enquiries and judgement about the service provider and qualifications of the individuals carrying out ear irrigation.
