Free earwax removal has been in the news this week with reports that 10 million people in England can no longer access free NHS earwax removal services.
Since March we have been working hard to set up a cost-effective gold-standard ENT microsuction service https://lonsdale-ear-clinic.com/ with a key aim of trying to commission a community-based ENT service for our patients.
We are delighted that K+W Healthcare (of which we are a part) has agreed to fund a pilot NHS microsuction, starting on the 30th January and hosted by the Lonsdale Medical Centre.
This microsuction clinic is GP-led and uses state of the art ENT surgical-grade microscopes: you can read more about this here:
The service is a pilot, running for 2 sessions a week for the next few months, and is for patients over the age of 12 with impacted wax that has failed to clear with drops.
To request an appointment for this you need an assessment by a clinician first to check you are eligble. Please contact us online to do this!
