Nice day for a wax wedding – Hearbase

Nice day for a wax wedding

Emergency Wax Removal

It was all go at Hearbase this week when bride-to-be, Isabel Kydd, approached us to help with an emergency ear wax removal appointment to help improve her hearing before the big day.

After a quick webchat explaining the situation to us, a member of our patient care team contacted Joana Carvalho, the audiologist at our Deal branch, to see if she could fit in a very last minute appointment the same day.

Time was very limited as the patient was due to travel to Scotland for her wedding early the next day!

Fortunately, our Deal team came to the rescue and we got the offending wax out quickly and safely, following strict coronavirus protocols throughout.

“Everyone at Hearbase that we have encountered today has been really helpful in trying to make sure I have every possible chance of enjoying Saturday,” wrote Isabel in her website blog post after the procedure.

Another happy patient and we wish the happy couple, Isabel and Carl, all the best for the future!

We are launching even more ear wax removal clinics

With many GPs still unable to offer ear wax removal, we are launching even more clinics from September to help meet demand and make sure we can see our patients quicker. From September 2020 our ear wax removal clinics will include:

  • Hearbase Deal – every Thursday (9am-5pm)
  • Hearbase Dover (White Cliffs Surgery) – every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (10am-2pm)
  • Hearbase at Spencer Ashford – every Wednesday and Friday (10am-2pm)
  • Hearbase Bromley – every Thursday (9am-5pm)
  • Hearbase Bexleyheath – every Wednesday (9am-5pm)

If you have a build up of ear wax please contact our team on 0800 028 6179 or email so we can check our diaries and book you as early as possible. Demand for this service is very high, but we hope our expanded clinics mean we can see you earlier.
