The most common hearing problems that people suffer with, tend to be as a result of wax blockages. In many cases wax will leave the ear naturally, however on occasion this process can be restricted and require manual removal. It is natural to have wax in the ear, it is important because it has many protected properties. However, from time to time an over secretion of oil or dead skin in the ear can result in more viscous and troublesome wax. As well as reduced hearing excessive wax can also result in Tinnitus. Having regular ear assessments is important.
There are a few different techniques for removal but we specialise in microsuction. Typically there are long waiting lists for ear wax removal at your GP and some practices have stopped doing it completely, however at the Chalfont Hearing Centre we can offer same day appointments (subject to availability). The cost of wax removal costs £75 (for the appointment).
Prices are subject to change, at our discretion. We will require upfront payment to secure your booking, as we are exceptionally busy and do not have the capacity to cater for missed appointments. We also have a 72 hour cancellation policy, we will not refund the appointment if you cancel less than 72 hours before your appointment, we may offer to transfer your appointment to another time and date subject to availability. Please call us on 01494 765144 to book an appointment.
Due to Covid-19 we are generally not accepting same day appointments at this time, we will also require you to follow our Covid-19 procedures (which include wearing a mask when attending). Also we are experiencing an exceptionally high demand due to the NHS not widely providing the service, so please be patient and polite when booking the appointment.
Additional note; If you are disgruntled with the lack of NHS provision please take it up with them, NOT our staff and team, they are not the correct outlet for your frustrations with the NHS. Rude and obnoxious behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated and will result in us refusing you treatment.
