EAR CARE

Pocklington Group Practice is unfortunately no longer able to offer removal of ear wax as part of its service.  The decision has been taken following changes in Government advice as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Please use the following NHS link for advice regarding ear care and wax management:

www.nhs.uk/conditions/earwax-build-up/

In this link, reference is made to nationally available private clinics and ear care specialists, who are offering the provision of either ear irrigation (using water to wash out the wax) or ear microsuction (using a suction machine for wax removal).

To source local specialist services, use the internet search for ‘ear wax removal’ or ‘ear care’ and include your location preference – ‘York area’ or ‘services near me’.                                                     

Some providers may also offer home visits.
