Ear Syringing & Cryotherapy
The practice is reluctantly stopping providing in house Ear Syringing and Cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) as of 1st April 2017 as these are not funded by the NHS.
Both services have been provided for free up to this point with the Partners paying all costs. However, you will have read that NHS finances are very difficult at present so the CCG will not commission a service locally.
Ear syringing: If you are experiencing painful ears you should book an appointment with a Clinician (a Health Care Assistant, Nurse or GP) for diagnosis. They can suggest a number if self-help options such as olive oil or sodium bicarbonate ear drops. A small number of people can be referred to hospital for microsuction of wax but most people requiring ear syringing will have to pay privately. Patients will need to contact private providers directly to enquire about costs. The Practice is forbidden from offering this service privately or making a reciprocal arrangement with another Practice.
Cryotherapy: If you have a skin lesion you should book an appointment with a GP for diagnosis. They will advise appropriate treatment options.
Due to an international shortage this vaccine is currently unavailable for the foreseeable future.
The entry period has now closed. Thank you to all who took the time to send photos in. The Patient Group are currently looking through all of the brilliant entries and the winners will be chosen shortly!
