These are often required when managing an ear infection. Swabs of debris from you ear are sent to a microbiology lab, which are cultured to help guide the most effective antibiotic/ antifungal treatment.
Mainly for antibiotics/ antifungals to treat any active ear infections found during an ear examination. These are sent to you via email.
* Please note the following important points in the event that any of the following outcomes arise during an appointment:
- No wax is found in your ears during an examination: Your appointment will be considered an ‘Ear Care Consultation’ and you will be charged for this as appropriate.
- It is not possible to remove all the wax from your ears during an appointment: You will be re-booked for a further wax microsuction session after a period of self-directed wax softening. Your follow-up appointment, and any others required to remove all the remaining wax in your ears, will be charged the same fee as an ‘Ear Care Consultation’
- Requirement of onward ENT referral: Recommendations for onward referral will be made on your report. These can either be arranged by our team upon request or left to you to arrange at your own convenience.
