Ear syringing should only be used as a last resort as it is an invasive procedure that can carry risks.
It may be possible for you to prevent wax build up by a regular maintenance of weekly Olive Oil (as described below).
If wax has built up, 7-14 days of Olive Oil drops may avoid the need for ear syringing, as it can encourage expulsion of wax on its own. Drops should be instilled two to three times a day for a minimum of one week, preferably two. The wax is softened and it often breaks up after using the drops. Flakes or crusts usually fall out bit by bit.
To do this successfully, you must:
Before having your ears syringed, please mention to the Nurse if you have had surgery to your ears or perforated ear drum.
During the ear syringing, please inform the Nurse immediately if the water is either too hot or too cold, or if you experience pain.
Ear syringing can cause dizziness. Potential risks include:
Please dry your ears thoroughly after syringing.

Whilst we are aware that some patients might understandably be anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of face coverings / masks in various public settings, the practice are not able to issue any letters or statements requesting that patients be exempt from wearing mandatory face coverings.
The Government guidance on exemptions suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption, therefore it is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this.
Details on people who do not have to wear a face covering can currently be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers#exemptions-face-coverings
