Ear Syringing Information for Patients
Ear syringing is not a service the practice is contracted to provide to the NHS as part of our General Medical Services Contract with NHS England and therefore we do not receive any funding to provide the service. Until recently, the practice was the only surgery in the area to continue to provide ear syringing to our patients. However, due to increased pressure on workload in primary care, it was felt necessary to stop providing this service so that valuable appointment time can be used to manage chronic diseases that are on the increase and for which we are contractually required to provide to all of our patients.
Ear Syringing or microsuction can be booked at the alternative providers below:
Clinics held every alternate Friday at Pulborough Medical Centre.
The rates are £50 for one ear and £80 for both ears.
To make a booking please contact them direct and ask for Hazel Spring. Email: email@example.com, Tel: 0333 011 7717
£35 per ear. If no wax is visible no charge is made.
Action for Deafness
£70 for both ears. Clinics are held in Haywards Heath every Wednesday Tel: 01444 415582 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and are therefore subject to a charge. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Following recent changes in the Doctors’ lists, the Practice would like to confirm that every patient is still under the overall care of a named and accountable GP.
Question and Answers:
What Does “Accountable” Mean?
Your named accountable GP will oversee the co-ordination of your care amongst the other health professionals.
Does this mean that my named accountable GP will take 24hr responsibility for my care?
No, the named accountable GP does not have 24hr responsibility for your care. Your named GP will oversee the care that you receive.
Does this mean that I have the right to see my named GP every time I book an appointment?
No, a patient can express who they would like to see, however, this may not always be possible due to appointment availability with that GP.
Will I be informed in writing who my accountable named GP is?
You should have received a letter around Christmas time in 2015 to inform you if you were changing to the list of a different Doctor. If you did not receive such a letter, this means that you are staying on the list of your regular GP. Please contact the Practice (Reception) after 11:00a.m. if you would like confirmation of who your usual Doctor is.
