Ear Wax removal - microsuction is the safest and gentlest method to remove wax from the ear canal. It involves placing a suction tube into the ear canal to gently suck the wax out. There is no water involved, is a completely dry procedure and can be done on ears that are not suitable for irrigation/syringing at the GP. £35 per ear.

Consultation with no wax removal - £25

Diagnostic Hearing Test - 90 minutes. £50

What you can expect in your test:

Introduction and discussion – Hearing difficulties are very personal and vary greatly from person to person. We use the information you disclose to form your individual management plan which helps us to achieve your hearing goals.

Video Otoscopy – using state of the art video otoscopy we will explore and examine the anatomy of your outer ear and ear drum - we will guide you through what we are seeing live. We can record and take photos which are stored on our secure patient management system as part of your ongoing care.

Audiometry – We use our state of the art equipment to assess the quietest sounds your ears can detect. This allows us to classify your hearing loss for our medical records. This part of the assessment is important but on it’s own the information it provides is limited. It doesn’t give the whole picture, like how well you hear when there is background noise.

Testing speech in noise – This involves testing your ability to ignore background noise in order to focus on a particular voice.

Summary and debrief of results – At this point we use all of the information gathered to form your indvidual hearing profile. We explain this in a way that you will understand. We then make recommendations to manage your hearing health; with the aim to improve your quality of life.

Report & Follow up – You will be given a full written report of our findings. This will detail the results of the assessment and will summarise the recommendations we provided for future reference. If any follow-up or referral is required we will include this in the summary.

Following your hearing test, if it is found that you would benefit from an hearing aid then a full range of Hearing Aid packages is offered by Adam.
