Search for your nearest community pharmacist.

If you think you may need ear irrigation (‘syringing’ ) please  book an *online appointment with the appropriate healthcare professional,  or alternatively please phone the reception desk on 01844 261066 to arrange your appointment.We are able to offer audiometry in the surgery for those assessed as requiring it. We also offer a syringing service, although in general it is not recommended, and we will always request you soften the wax for 2 weeks using olive oil or another product first.

*only if this facility is available, please refer to the this link for information about how to book your appointment. Please refer to the nurses section in this link for information on our nursing staff when arranging your appointment, as we may only have a Practice Nurse, who can do this.
