From 1st July 2019 Ear irrigation (Ear syringing) will no longer be available at Castlegate and Derwent Surgery

We are committed to providing best practice and high quality medical care to our registered patients. Ear syringing is no longer considered to be the first line treatment for the clearing of ear wax and it is not a funded service within the NHS for General Practice.

Current guidelines are that ear drops should be used to soften the wax which will then enable the natural movement of the wax from the ear. Further information and treatment options are available in our 'Ear Wax- self help guide' available to download or collect a copy from our waiting area.

In line with current best practice and many other GP surgeries nationwide, Castlegate and Derwent Surgery has made the decision to withdraw the ear syringing service with effect from 1st July 2019.

If you have ear symptoms that concern you, please book an appointment to see the Nurse or GP at the practice.
