Global IT Outages

Due to global IT outages we are unable to access any medical records. Therefore, we are only able to provide immediate and necessary treatment until the issues are resolved. North East London ICB is working to find a resolution as soon as possible and we will keep this site updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding

Advice:

A pharmacist can help with earwax build-up

Speak to a pharmacist about earwax build-up. They can give advice and suggest treatments.

They might recommend chemical drops to dissolve the earwax. The earwax should fall out on its own or dissolve after about a week.

Do not use drops if you have a hole in your eardrum (a perforated eardrum).
