Noticeboard

We will no loinger be offering ear irrigation, commonly referred to as "syringing", for the management of impacted ear wax as of 31st January 2019. The decision was reached on the grounds of patient safety. National guidance now reflects the risk of significant infection associated with ear irrigation, particularly in older people and diabetics. It is recommended that micro-suction should now be considered in these patients for managing impacted wax if self-care methods have failed.

We will continue to offer assessment regarding ear symptoms and to check for the presence of impacted wax. For the majority of cases we would encourage the ear care as outlined in the practice leaflet.

If it is felt mechanical methods for wax removal are required we can refer you on the NHS to the ear, nose and throat (ENT) service in Kendal, or the micro-suction service offered across Morecambe Bay Hospitals.

The Hearing Centre, Salt Pie Lane, Kirkby Lonsdale LA6 2BH - Appointments Thursday’s and some availabilities Tuesday’s and Friday’s - £40 for one ear, £60 for 2 ears.
