Tim Husband is a fully qualified Clinical Ear Care Specialist.
Tim has been a Clinical Audiologist, Hearing Therapist and Registered Hearing Therapist for 25 years working as a Chief Audiologist for the NHS prior to developing his private practice at Hearing Therapy Ltd.
He provides a range of earwax removal services in-clinic including instrument and microsuction.
Tim has been ENT-trained to perform earwax removal to safely clean and clear your blocked ear. Unlike ear syringing and irrigation which attempts to flush out ear blockage blindly by pumping water in your ear, microsuction gently vacuums the earwax out of the ear under direct vision using medical-grade clinical loupe optics. This method of visualising the obstruction with a loupe whilst removing it affords a wide clear field of view to enable comfortable and safe removal.

Endoscopic Wax Microsuction
Endoscopic Microsuction is rapidly becoming the most popular way of taking wax out of a person’s ear canal – our Audiologist/Hearing Aid Dispenser uses an iPod with a specialist attachment allowing an endoscope camera to be fitted to it.
Water irrigation ear wax removal is a safe method of ear cleaning for people who are comfortable with it. The water irrigation/ Ear Syringing solution is carefully warmed to body temperature for comfort and gentle pulse pressure water flow is used to clear the wax from the ear.
Manual Wax Removal
Manual removal is using specially designed tools to remove the wax from the outer part of the ear canal. Sometimes it helps to physically lift the piece of wax if it is quite solid and deep.
One or Two Ears: £70
Assessment Only: £30
An after hours domiciliary service is available on request. There is a £30 surcharge for this service.
There is only one charge for wax removal. In most cases this can be achieved in one visit. If more than one visit is required to remove the wax safely and comfortably you will not be charged multiple times.
If the problem is not ear wax there is a £30 appointment fee. Hearing test and/or referral advice will be offered.
