As ear suction is now widely available and it is a safer procedure than ear irrigation, the practice have reviewed its policy on this.
Ear irrigation is not without danger, it is for this reason that any future ear irrigation requests will only be available for those who require audioloy referrals, or those who already have NHS hearing aids ( if private hearing aids- this can be done by their hearing aid provider).

This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Please speak to your local pharmacy to arrange your vaccines.
