Practices should remove earwax causing hearing loss, NICE recommends


The 'Ivory Tower Experts' have done their cost analysis and it came out at the record lowest amount in their history. Foist the ear wax removal onto GPs never ending open contract and it will be done for free - forget the fact its not part of the core contract and there is no payment/resources/expenses/medico-legal cover for this. Commission a service for ear wax -and then the money saved from referrals to secondary care - would fund Crown indemnity for all GPs and NHS staff.
