Patients who are suffering with blocked ears (wax) can self-manage this condition - please read this patient information leaflet for a guide of how to do this.
Patient self-referral for age related hearing loss services
Patients are now able to refer themselves to the age-related hearing loss service without the need for a GP referral.
If you are aged 55 or over and are experiencing hearing and communication difficulties and feel you might benefit from a hearing assessment and rehabilitation including the option of trying hearing aids, please complete this self-referral form and give this to your chosen provider. Details of the providers available are included within the form.
If you suffer from earwax built up or suspect that you may have a build-up of earwax, please perform 2 weeks self-management as set out in the following information leaflet: Blocked ears - wax - patient information.pdf
Do not perform earwax removal if you have any of the following symptoms and seek advice from the practice nurse or your GP: pain, discharge or bleeding from your ear, sudden deafness or buzzing sound, foreign bodies in your ear, dizziness.
If you require wax removal at your assessment appointment, this will be provided only if the self-management steps have been followed.
