Ear Syringing – Earwax removal
Struggling to hear? Ear syringing, also known as earwax irrigation could be the answer. Your loss of hearing could be due to a build up of earwax called Cerumen (or more commonly called- earwax). Acting as a defence mechanism for the ear, the wax can unwillingly make your sense of hearing dulled. This is due to the process where the wax clears any and all debris out of the ear. Starting at the outer third of the ear canal and making its way outwards, the wax utilities its unique properties of being a natural lubricant, adhesive and anti-bacterial to defend the sensitive parts of the ear.
However, via a quick process of ear syringing London Doctors Clinic and our fully qualified, very experienced GP’s and nurses can easily solve the issue. So why not come in for earwax removal with one of our team only £85.
Please note patients must be 18+ for ear syringing.

Why should I come in for ear syringing?
An earwax build up is likely to be caused by the wax being pushed into the ear canal during cleaning with cotton buds. Although recognised by loss of hearing, there are other symptoms, which include coughing, itching, ringing and sometimes pain.
Ear syringing itself involves using a flow of low-pressure water via a specialised ear irrigator to harmlessly remove the earwax blockage. Quick and painless, ear syringing at the London Doctors Clinic promises to have none of the hassle of waiting while catering to an important part of ear care. Simply book online for a 15-minute consultation, mentioning the earwax removal procedure in the Notes section when booking.
We’d also recommend you prepare your ear canals for the ear syringing, by using ear-drops to soften the wax (available from any pharmacy) for 3-7 days before the appointment. If the wax is not softened before your appointment, we may not be able to complete the procedure on the day of your appointment.
