Location & parking
Cotswold Ear Care clinic is based at Oakwell Health Clinic, 45 Cirencester Road, Cheltenham, GL53 8EX. Clinic takes place on Thursdays only, there is free parking is available on site. There is a waiting area at the clinic where you can fill in our 5min consent form.

What should I do to prepare for the procedure?
You will need to (ideally) oil your ears twice a day for 1-2 days before the procedure. You can use olive oil, it’s best if it’s warm. For the best results place a few drops in your ear canal, then make a plug from cotton wool and vaseline, this will keep the oil in, leave the plug in for 30mins or so.

What Covid precautions will I be taking?
Our ear care practitioners perform the procedure in full PPE and ask that patients wear a mask, We can provide a mask if you don’t have one. Before and after the procedure Our ear care practitioners socially distance as per government guidelines. We have allowed 10 minutes between each appointment to clean thoroughly.

How long does the procedure take?
It depends on how blocked your ears are. We allow 30mins for each appointment this is usually enough time even for the most stubborn wax.

How much does it cost?
per appointment. We do not offer a’ single ear only’ price because our ear care practitioners have a duty to take time to assess the health of both ears – and if necessary clean them both. if there is no wax present the cost is £35 for the consultation.

We accept cards, bank transfer and cheques.
