Bicester Health Centre no longer offers routine ear syringing services

 

Regrettably, but in common with the other practices in the area, due to the high and increasing demands on general practice, we no longer have capacity to provide this service. We have asked OCCG to support us by commissioning this service from practices but they have declined to do so. In addition, there is not good evidence for the benefit of ear syringing (wax serves a protective function in preventing infection in the ear canal) and there is a small risk of harm (damage to the ear canal and even perforation of the ear drum). See our Ear Care page for information about self-treatment or clinics offering ear wax removal.

New Website

We have launched our new website which we hope will be useful for all of our patients. The new site has all of the information previously available, but now in a new format which displays on mobile phone, tablets and computers. You can also search on the site for terms you are looking for.

Do let us have feedback on the new-look site, or if you find something that has been omitted or you think may be incorrect.
