We are open again and we are very proud to announce we are the first nurse-led private ear care clinic in the area to be registered with the Care Quality Commission.
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and social care in England and regulates services to ensure they are safe, caring, effective, responsive and well-led.
The Ear Clinic has moved to within Bawtry Foot Clinic and now has a ground floor room. Safety measures remain in place.
Nurses will be wearing PPE and you will be asked if you would like to wear a face covering during the procedure.
If you have any concerns or queries please let Linda know.

In just over 30 minutes, be wax free!
Using a microscope or loupe glasses, wax is removed by a fine tip attached to a suction machine.
Warm water is instilled into the outer ear, rinsing the wax out. The ear is dried well afterwards
Wax is gently teased out of the ear with an appropriate instrument.
A thorough consultation is carried out at each visit. Both ears will be examined at all times but you only pay for the necessary procedure.
Free return treatment if wax isn't cleared at the first appointment.
A thorough consultation at home. Wax removal by instrumentation, irrigation or microsiction. Price dependent on location.
“A truly personal service”
Linda made me feel relaxed and at ease during the procedure. She was professional yet friendly and ensured I understood everything I needed to before my microsuction appointment. I would highly recommend Linda - she even performed the procedure at my home as I couldn’t get to her clinic.
Linda has over 25 years of experience as an ear care specialist and has won numerous awards for her outstanding work. You can be sure your ears are in safe and experienced hands
A thorough consultation is carried out at each visit meaning care is tailored to each individual’s needs. Help and advice is always available.
Can't make it to our clinics? We can offer you helpful advice and wax removal procedures and in the comfort of your own home.
Instrumentation is a method of removing wax using an instrument. This may be appropriate if the wax is at the outside of the ear canal. The clinician will ensure they have direct vision into the ear canal by using a headlight, loupe glasses or a microscope.
Yes, home visits can be arranged - costs start at £70, dependent on location.
Ear syringing used to be carried out with a metal syringe, now the process of removing wax with water is carried out with an electronic irrigator, which has a controlled pressure and is referred to as ear irrigation.
Wax is a natural substance found in the outer ear. Wax is important because it protects the ear in several ways;
• It acts as a barrier preventing dust, hairs and foreign bodies from getting into the ear.
• It is bactericidal so helps protects the ear from infection
• It is a lubricant so keeps the outer ear moist and prevents dryness.
Occasionally, ear wax may be too hard to remove at the first visit. If this is the case, the patient will be asked to instill more olive oil and another consultation will be arranged at no extra cost.
