Ear wax removal service

Build-up of ear wax is a common problem, which can lead to deafness, pain and a feeling of fullness in the ear. The removal of ear wax is carried out safely at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, using a suction device and a microscope. 

An appointment for ear wax removal is not a medical consultation, so if further investigation into underlying causes is identified as necessary by your consultant, you will be required to return to your GP for another referral to see an ENT consultant for a full consultation, or for referral to the NHS. Please note that in this situation the fee for wax removal is still due.
