Are you feeling blocked up?

It may be excess ear wax. This is often caused by inappropriate use of cotton buds or similar in the ear canal, which whilst removing some, will invariably push more further down. Excess ear wax can be the result of working in dirty or dusty environments, swimming, an ear infection, using noise plugs at work, etc.
This ear wax will eventually block the eardrum, making it harder to hear (and maybe make the person feel a little disorientated, with some discomfort possible too). Over time the ear wax will solidify and may adhere to the sides of the ear canal or even the eardrum.

Micro suction

Has become widely available in the UK. This is perhaps the safest and most comfortable method of excess ear wax removal. Our staff are fully trained, qualified and experienced in this procedure. Our staff are ALSO TRAINED in irrigation and instrumentation, meaning we can use whichever combination of methods is best for YOU.

I enquired about an appointment to remove excess wax from my ears - booked a date within the week and Stephen was professional, friendly and very efficient in solving my problem. I would happily recommend this service to anyone with similar hearing problems.

From the minute I got on the phone to the second I left the clinic with renewed hearing, I'd had such a pleasant experience with the whole team.The lady that I spoke to (I'm so sorry I didn't catch her name!) to book a consultation was lovely, listened to my concerns and helped me get the right bookings sorted to tackle my issue.Dr Alan is amazing! So kind, so so helpful, and cleared my hearing within minutes; it was a tricky issue but he reassured me every step along the way that I was in good hands! Thanks to him and the team, I was able to go into a listening exam with peace of mind. I can't thank them enough.

My third visit here this morning. Steven was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable. He explained everything he was doing. Treatment was first class... and I also learned some interesting aural facts!!! No hesitation to wholeheartedly recommend!

As we are getting a lot older we felt it was time to have our ears checked. We wanted to be sure to have a well trained audiologist to check our ears & I knew Jo was very experienced. It was excellent.!! There was no rush to have everything done to check things out and she explained to us what was happening to our hearing. We were both very pleased with how it went. And the practice is spotlessly clean!!!

I needed some good quality hearing aids a few years back and found the Nottingham hearing practice due to their excellent reviews. I purchased and have been back three times now for an annual hearing check which was also included.You're always made to feel welcome and they're happy to answer any questions you may have. Everything is also explained in layman's terms so you're not bamboozled with what the issue is.If you're looking for an audiologist I would definitely recommend you to contact the Nottingham Hearing practice.

I had had hearing troubles for a few days and was at my wits end when I called the Nottingham hearing practice and I'm so glad I did! Due to a cancellation they had managed to get me in super quick and fixed my hearing issue in 20 minutes. Joanne was absolutely lovely and put me completely at ease! The practice itself was very straightforward to find and I was welcomed with a smile and friendly face on arrival. 5* service.
