From 1st April 2018 we will no longer be carrying out routine ear syringing at the Practice, with the exception of patients who have been referred to the local Audiology Department and need to have their ears clear of wax before they attend their appointment. This is an ‘extra’ service that is not funded by NHS England and all the local surgeries across Adur and Worthing have decided to withdraw this service. We have told our local Clinical Commissioning Group that we are withdrawing this service, and if they fund it we will be happy to continue to do it.
MIAMI clinics are proving invaluable in helping us provide prompt ‘on the day’ access to a GP for our patients. You will only be offered an appointment if you are suitable and pressure on the system is high.
