EAR SYRINGING AT CROYARD MEDICAL PRACTICE

We have made the decision to stop providing an ear syringing service at the practice.
We are faced with a huge increase in the demand for clinical time and medical services in other areas, and so we no longer have the capacity to be able to offer this service in the practice.
Ear syringing has been withdrawn by most other GP practices in Highland for some time for the same reasons.
What we can do is encourage self-care for patients; there is evidence that oiling, and also self-irrigation, can work well for a significant number of patients. We have provided the following information to encourage self-care, before accessing ear syringing.
Please note – We will never refuse appointments for those who have ear pain
