Taking care of your hearing is vital! We all want to live life to the fullest and that is why good ear health is important to people of all ages. There are many factors that can affect our ear health including age, the misuse of earbuds, constant exposure to very loud noises and of course the build-up of wax. If our ear health is compromised then our ability to hear deteriorates, this often causes people to be socially withdrawn. If you are concerned about your hearing health or you are looking for ear wax removal in Chippenham then please contact us, we can help.

In the United Kingdom, it is estimated that around 3.9% of the population requires management of ear wax each year with many people having to wait 12 to 16 weeks to get treatment. These statistics are astonishing and due to the lack of treatments available with the NHS, many people simply go on living their lives with this condition, unaware that they can get treated at their local pharmacy. Here at Chippenham Pharmacy and Health Clinic, we want to help our customers with conditions such as this and that is why we have partnered up with TympaHealth to provide easy and accessible Ear Wax Removal in Chippenham.

Diagnosis & Treatment

Thanks to modern technology, TympaHealth treatments and procedures can help quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections, as well as excessive & compacted wax, can be identified & treated quickly & painlessly.

Each appointment will take roughly 30-60 minutes. One of our highly trained clinicians will carry out the assessment. Once they have removed some wax the hearing screening can be performed if requested. During the examination, high-definition images and videos will be taken. This will identify any hearing issues and whether or not you may require further treatment from specialist doctors. In most cases, however, the initial problem is simply the presence of excessive wax. If this is the case, a fast & painless micro-suction procedure can be performed to clear the ear of any debris or built-up wax. This procedure could immediately improve hearing capabilities.  In some instances, it is not possible to remove all the wax during one appointment due to either the amount, or the level of impaction.  In these situations a follow up appointment may be required.

Ear Microsuction is the safest and most effective way to remove earwax.  It works by inserting a low-pressure suction probe into the ear. The probe will be controlled by one of our trained clinicians who will be able to see clearly into the ear canal to remove the wax.  Please note, this procedure is only available for adults.  For under 18s, please contact the pharmacy who will be happy to offer support and guidance.

This procedure is painless and does not involve water being squirted into your ear canal as syringing does. It is a simple and clean procedure, however we recommend softening the wax for 5 days prior to your appointment to ease the removal process.  Our trained clinician will then be able to advise on whether a follow-up/aftercare appointment is necessary.  If this is required, a follow-up appointment can be booked.  If you require products to soften your ear wax, please contact the pharmacy or leave a note on the pharmacy booking form.

Our clinics normally run on a Monday and Wednesday, however if you need a different day, please contact our pharmacy team (01249 793600 or contactus@chippenhampharmacy.org.uk) to see how we can help.
