Ear Irrigation

From 8th January 2020 Ear Irrigation (Ear Syringing) will no longer be available at Constable Country Medical Practice

we endeavour to provide the best practice and high quality medical care to our registered patients. Ear syringing is no longer considered to be the first line of 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 on

In line with current best practice and many other GP surgeries nationwide, Constable Country Medical Practice has made the decision to withdraw the ear syringing service with effect from 8th January 2020.

If you would like to see a private audiologist, we have Graeme Sly from Micro Technology Ltd who see's patients at our practice in East Bergholt.
