Norfolk patient threatens to sue GP after facing long wait for ear wax removal

Comment

Surely now we are being told that earwax syringing is bad for ears and should no longer be started, we should all be stopping it at once before we get sued for actually doing it to someone who’s not satisfied with the outcome.Maybe , like dental advice,the medical defence organisations could come up with a supportive declaration that they would support gps deciding to stop the service and only insure ent specialist ,so we can inform our patients that we cannot do stuff we are not insured for (let alone paid for)
