Vicky O'Doherty - Ear Wax Removal

Vicky O'Doherty

Vicky is a Registered Nurse and offers a clinic for ear wax removal for adults and children.

An excessive build-up of ear wax can be very troublesome and can lead to hearing loss, tinnitus, and a feeling of pressure or pain in the ear. Ears are normally self-cleaning, however wearing hearing aids, pushing cotton buds into the ear, working in a dusty environment, having narrow ear canals, or producing excessive wax can hinder this natural process causing discomfort.

As the local GP surgeries are no longer offering ear wax removal, this has led to an increase in private ear wax removal clinics. The clinic is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which ensures high standards of care and safety for clients. The clinic times are flexible to accommodate individual need and the clinic room is readily accessible on the ground floor of the building.

Vicky encourages you to tell her of any extra needs you may have prior to your visit to ensure a safe, effective, and comfortable treatment. Vicky strives to deliver the best service and as such welcomes all feedback to improve her service.

Vicky has over 25 years of Nursing experience and currently holds a part-time NHS Specialist Nurse position in addition to her private clinic.
Vicky offers all methods for ear wax removal in her clinic to ensure individualised care, prioritising safety, and comfort. These methods are Microsuction, Water Irrigation and Manual wax removal. The most appropriate method will be agreed with you during your assessment.

Covid 19
Vicky is fully vaccinated against Covid 19 and continues to wear full PPE (apron, gloves and face mask) for each client to reduce the risk of infection. All clients are kindly asked to wear a face mask for treatment and to postpone their treatment if they are unwell.
