Alternatives to services we no longer offer

For various reasons we may stop offering clinics and services that we have offered in the past.

Ear Syringing at Denham & Aysgarth Medical Centres will no longer be available from 1st March 2019
Regrettably due to the increased demands on our service we are no longer able to offer an ear syringing service.  We have continued to offer this service for as long as we could without receiving any funding to do so but unfortunately the Partners have had to come to the difficult decision to prioritise the services for which we are contracted by NHS England. This procedure is not included in our GMS contract. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we are sure you will appreciate that we need appointments for things that are specified within the ‘core contract of services that we have to provide’.

Another option available to you is to find a private provider such as:

  • Chalfont Hearing Centre, 01494 765144
  • Help in Hearing, 0345 222 0579
  • Rickmansworth Earwax Removal Clinic, 0800 1337 987
  • Specsavers, 01895 256010

Disclaimer: Denham & Aysgarth Medical Centre takes no responsibility for services given by other private providers.


Videos and podcasts

Many people prefer to see a video or listen to a podcast as it offers a different way to understand health information. On the videos and podcasts page there are links to some relevant videos and podcasts covering various topics relating to our  clinics and local services, including under wellbeing and disease prevention, health conditions including long term conditions, pregnancy and more.
