If I don't have ear wax, will I still be charged for the appointment?

Yes, even if no ear wax is found during your appointment, you will still be charged the standard £60. The cost is for an appointment with an experienced Aural Care Specialist.


The appointment encompasses more than just ear wax removal; it includes a comprehensive ear health check to assess the overall condition of your ears.


If this check reveals any other complications, we will provide guidance on how to manage these issues at home. Should there be a need for further medical intervention, we will coordinate directly with your GP or an ENT specialist to ensure you receive the appropriate care.


Our goal is to ensure your ear health is thoroughly evaluated and any concerns are addressed, regardless of the presence of ear wax.


Please Note: Clinics that do offer a reduced rate for no ear wax tend not to be Aural Care Specialists, such as pharmacists and other wax removal clinics who are not regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

Can child undergo ear wax removal? (wax removal for kids)


We are one of the few licensed ear care clinics capable of treating children and adults of all ages. Children can safely undergo ear wax removal, provided they are of an age where they can remain relatively still during the procedure.


Our clinics offer a child-friendly environment and techniques specifically suited to younger patients, ensuring their comfort and safety throughout the process.


If my child can't sit still will I still be charged?

If a child cannot remain still, we may not complete the procedure for safety reasons. In such cases, full payment is required as the appointment slot is fully allocated to the patient, involving preparation, staff time, and facility use. However, we understand the unique challenges with young patients and offer a complimentary follow-up appointment to successfully complete the procedure when the child is more prepared.


How do I book my child in for ear wax removal?

It is important that we first speak to you over the phone to confirm you understand the points above. Please call us on 0141 482 7004

How do I know if I need ear wax removal? (Symptoms)

Key indications and symptoms that suggest you might need ear wax removal include:

  • Diminished Hearing: Reduced ability to hear, which can affect one or both ears.

  • Discomfort or Pain: Any level of discomfort or pain within the ear, potentially indicating wax build-up.

  • Fullness or Pressure: A sensation of the ear being clogged or under pressure, making it feel blocked.

  • Tinnitus: Persistent noises such as ringing, buzzing, or humming in the ear, not caused by external sounds.

  • Dizziness: Experiences of unsteadiness or vertigo, suggesting inner ear involvement.

  • Itchiness: Persistent itching in the ear canal, which might lead to scratching and further irritation.

  • Ear Infections: Recurrent ear infections, which can be exacerbated by trapped moisture due to wax blockage.

  • Odour or Discharge: An unusual odour or discharge from the ear, which might indicate an underlying issue.

  • Coughing: Reflex coughing triggered by irritation from ear wax pressing on the vagus nerve.

Additionally, if you are scheduled for a hearing test, it's highly recommended to undergo ear wax removal beforehand. Excessive ear wax can obstruct the ear canal, preventing the accurate assessment of your hearing capabilities. Without clear pathways, the hearing test may not be completed successfully, and the results could be skewed, leading to inaccurate diagnoses or recommendations. Ensuring your ears are clear of wax helps in obtaining precise hearing test outcomes.


During your consultation, we assess these symptoms and examine your ears to determine the necessity and suitability of ear wax removal.
