Do you think you may have hearing loss? Here’s some tell tale signs:

  • Are you turning the volume up on your TV or radio?
  • Do you struggle to keep up with the conversation in noisy environments?

If you suspect you may have hearing loss, it’s important to have a hearing consultation with a qualified healthcare professional. They will be able to evaluate your hearing, diagnose any hearing loss, and provide appropriate recommendations for treatment or management.

At North London Hearing we know that having a hearing loss can be isolating and hard to accept. When you come to our clinics either in Golders Green or Harley Street, we will treat you with care and understanding, paying particular attention to your individual hearing needs.

Why not come in for a hearing test and consultation with one of our highly trained clinical audiologists. We have clinics in Golders Green and Harley Street.

    If you have blocked ears we normally have appointments available within 24 hours for an £80 fee. Our highly trained clinical audiologists will remove the wax by microsuction. A gentle suction device is used to remove earwax under a microscope carried out with precision accuracy using high-spec examination microscopes.  This gives your audiologist x20 magnification for unrivalled visibility and depth perception so they can work safely in the ear canal. The procedure is quick, safe and painless, and doesn’t involve putting liquid into your ear.

    It can be tempting to take matters into your own hands and try using cotton buds or your fingers to remove the blockage but we strongly advise avoiding this. Pushing objects into your ear to try and clear them can cause further damage, so ear wax extraction should always be carried out by a professional.

    To achieve the best results apply softening drops or olive oil prior to your appointment. This makes it much easier to remove any hardened wax.

    If you wear hearing aids, please bring these along to your appointment and we can check and clean them for you.

    Please be aware that we are not able to issue prescriptions; if you suspect that you may have an infection, please seek the advice of your GP.
