The Ear Wax Removal team consists of four local practitioners who are responsible for performing community-based earwax removal services to patients within the West Midlands area. Our team was established in 2019 to address the need for a convenient solution to long delays in receiving treatment for NHS wax removal.
As qualified nurses, the team are all trained, skilled and have the necessary equipment to provide electronic irrigation, microsuction and manual removal using instrumentation (probe) within a community setting.
Ear Wax Removal
Earwax is a normal bodily secretion which protects your ears from dust and dirt. Unfortunately, about 2.3 million people each year have problems with earwax build-up and due to an ageing population, it is expected that this number will continue to rise.
The Ear Wax Removal team consisting of four highly skilled and trained practitioners who provide earwax removal services to patients with excess earwax build-up and as a result, suffer from hearing loss and discomfort.
Passionate about providing a patient-tailored earwax removal service in the community, we offer ear microsuction from our clinic or in the comfort of your own home, place of work or nursing and residential home setting.
Our ear canals are self-cleaning. As we move our jaw to eat and talk, the wax and skin cells move slowly from the eardrum to the outer ear where it naturally falls out.
The waxy material is produced by glands inside the ear and its purpose is to protect our ears by trapping dirt and repelling water. It keeps the skin in our ear canal healthy, preventing it from drying and cracking. It also helps to prevent infections.
