Ear Wax Removal Essex.

Service available in Chelmsford and Ramsden Heath.

Click Hearing offers two different types of service for ear wax removal.

Ear wax removal via Microsuction is where the wax is removed using a gentle suction and a high power microscope to view the ear canal and drum. Many Ear Nose and Throat Doctors prefer this method.

Ear wax removal using irrigation is a more traditional method of ear wax removal and offers a less invasive and quieter process than microsuction and is therefore better suited for very nervous or anxious clients. 

If you unsure which is best for you please contact us for advice or refer to our FAQ section below.

Please note that we can only accept bookings for children who are aged 7 or older. If you are booking for a child under 16 then please call us first to ensure you are clear on what the procedure entails.

Both services are £85 and include an initial inspection and assessment of the ears before the ear wax removal procedure takes place.

If no wax is discovered a consultancy fee of £30 is applied.

Ear Wax removal with Microsuction

Watch our short video on how we remove ear wax using microsuction. It’s a simple process and the effect is immediate. Call us today for your appointment or book online.

What is hearing loss?

The words ‘hearing loss’ or ‘hearing impairment’ are used to describe the inability to pick up sound or hear things around you, either completely or partially. There are varying degrees of hearing loss, ranging from mild to severe hearing loss and profoundly deaf. Individuals suffering from hearing loss can be affected in a number of ways and it can often cause emotional, physical and mental strain that can impact negatively on all areas of life.

Thankfully there are a number of solutions for every degree of hearing loss. The team at Click Hearing are fully trained to help you find the best solution for your individual needs.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

      • Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice than they used to?
      • When you are in a group, or in a crowded restaurant, is it difficult for you to follow the conversation?
      • Do you often need to turn up the volume on your TV or radio?
      • Do you find it difficult to pinpoint where a noise is coming from?
      • Has someone close to you mentioned that you might have a problem with your hearing?

If you have answered YES to one or more of the above questions you could be suffering from hearing loss. Book online for a hearing test or call us for more information.

Hearing Tests.

At Click Hearing we invest highly in the latest hearing test equipment and technology to ensure that you receive the diagnosis, help and support that you need.

As well as our online hearing test available below we offer two types of hearing tests at our practices, both offering an interpretation of your results using cutting edge fully calibrated equipment.

Our hearing screen takes no more than 15 minutes and is designed to quickly determine whether your hearing is operating efficiently or whether assistance may be required.

Our comprehensive hearing assessment includes so much more than just testing the quietest sounds you can hear. Due to the various reasons that hearing loss can occur we will perform a variety of tests including Otoscopy, Tympanometry, Acoustic Reflexes, Otoacoustic Emissions and Auditory Processing (more detail opposite) and provide you with a full Audiogram report.

If you believe that you or someone you know may be experiencing hearing loss it is important to get it checked out by a professional.

Audiometry (Tone or Speech) hearing test

Using tones of varying frequencies and volume, this test provides us with an evaluation of your sense of hearing and is carried out in a sound proof booth for the most accurate measurements.

Tympanometry Test.

This test is often carried out in conjunction with audiometry and is used to assess the function of the middle ear. We can also provide ipsi & contralateral reflexes and reflex decay on request.

Brainstem evoked response audiometry hearing test

This test uses electrodes that are placed on the scalp and behind the ears to measure neural responses to brief tones, available in outpatient clinics or theatre for objective tests or reviewing the growth of acoustic neuroma.


Enables us to view the condition of the outer ear and provides us with a permanent photographic record for future reference.

Otoacoustic emissions (DP, TE and SE) hearing tests for babies.

Used to test the function of the cochlea and other parts of the ear to investigate possible early noise damage and objective tinnitus assessment. Further hearing tests may be needed to determine if there is hearing loss or not.

Listening in Spatialised Noise

Sentences Test (LiSN-S) Developed by the National Acoustics Laboratory this is a virtual-reality hearing test that measures speech perception used for the evaluation of auditory processing disorders.

Hearing Aids.

Hearing aids come in an array of styles and performance levels. As an independent hearing aid provider, we are able to choose from the whole market of hearing aid suppliers.

We give you the widest choice of digital hearing aid solutions from leading hearing aid manufacturers including: Phonak, Lyric, Audio Services, Signia, Starkey, Bernafon, Oticon, Widex, ReSound and Unitron

Choosing the right hearing aid.

There are a wide variety of hearing aid types and styles available to suit all tastes. At Click Hearing our professional audiologists will help you to select the right type of hearing aid for your needs.

We listen to our patients.

I attended for my first experience of micro suction and found a warm welcome as soon as I entered. The procedure was explained and pictures taken of the inside of my ears both before and after and shown to me. The removal was quick and easy and as I’m in a wheelchair, I found the Upminster branch accommodating with a ramp ready for me to enter. I was also able to stay in my chair while the treatment was carried out. I will definitely use this service again when necessary.

Very good service, did not have to wait and extremely professional. I went in for some swimming ear plugs and would totally recommend Click Hearing. The only issue is trying to find parking, otherwise great.

I recently brought my mother here as she had a build up of wax in both ears. This had left her virtually unable to hear anything. As the doctors will no longer provide a service to clear wax and NHS appointment was 2 months away we decided to try Click hearing. My mother was delighted with the results as all wax was removed and hearing is now restored. The audiologist was amazing- very patient and gentle. Took great care to talk about procedure first and was very reassuring. Would thoroughly recommend!

What a brilliant service. I was having trouble with blocked ears. I booked the appointment online which was easy to do. Closer to my booking I was sent another confirmation email, which even had parking details on if. Would highly recommend. Hayley was lovely and informative. I would recommend to anyone.

I turned up with a very nervous auntie aged 92 ( on her birthday!) who had been diagnosed late December with ear wax.. Booked online Monday, seen Tuesday pm. We were early and went straight in as the previous customer was also seen and dealt with early. The whole process took 12 minutes and was as pleasant an experience as possible. Auntie was smiling at the end and was relieved at how straightforward and painless the microsuctioning procedure was. The experience was top drawer. Chris Hayward : Wickford, Essex.

This is my second visit to Click Hearing where the service is excellent. Viva is very professional and puts you at ease very quickly and makes sure you are aware and comfortable at every stage of the process. If you have any issues or problems relating to hearing then I highly recommend Click Hearing.

Fantastic service, and very friendly. The micro-suction is less intrusive and quick, with no mess or discomfort. Easy to book and well worth the competitive cost.

Thank you for fixing my ears! Couldn’t hear very well and was in pain due to an ear wax plug in my ear. Picked here as the audiologists seem more experienced and rated highly (better than Boots and Specsavers). Had a micro suction procedure and was amazing, couldn’t believe what was removed. Quick and painless in one appointment. Amazing feeling having clean ears!

My husband and I both went in as we were both having problems on regular occasions with our hearing being impaired due to blocked ears. My husband in particular was having difficulty- he would have days on end with a blocked ear(s). Turned out we had, as suspected, a wax build up in our ears. What a difference after the treatment- my husband still comments it was one of the best things he's done for himself! The service was friendly and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone who has issues with blocked ears.

Went to click hearing because both my ears had blocked , always had an issue with my ears blocking, went to click hearing and one of the consultants managed to unblock one ear but not the other, was invited back to try the other blocked one but still no luck, made a third visit when it was then possible to solve my issue. All the consultants were very friendly and considerate and the same goes for the ladies in reception, very helpful. Would deffinatley recommend. Thank you.

Having a blocked ear I booked online Sunday evening and found an appointment for Monday morning! I was seen at the booked time, took 10 mins, and my ears are all cleared. The treatment is a little nosey, but at least you don't get wet and it doesn't hurt. Great service and worth the cost. Would recommend.

Very friendly and explained the simple microsuction procedure straight away to put my nerves at ease. It wasn't painful at all and the lady even tested the suction on the back of my hand. Very quick and easy, so much better than waiting 3 weeks to see the nurse at my doctors and no messing about with ear drops either, which is another huge bonus for me. Weekend appointments too, which helps me greatly. I will definitely be recommending and coming back.

Brought my 10 year old child here and was absolutely amazed by the fantastic level of care and support given during the 30 minute procedure - which showed a surprising amount of impacted ear wax, all of which was completely removed - to our absolute satisfaction. Highly recommended.

I’ve been attending the Upminster branch for several years, having previously used Boots at various locations. I switched to Click as they are local and, unlike Boots, the audiologists aren’t constantly being moved around. The friendly and efficient service I’ve received from Click has been excellent and the attention to detail when setting up my hearing aids has to be seen to be believed. Not only that, but the amount of wax they manage to extract from the depths of my ears is remarkable!

Helpful, welcoming staff who talk through results with you in an informative and useful way. They are also great at remembering your history and using it to help track how you are doing. The tests carried out are thorough and check your hearing and ears in lots of ways. Would definitely recommend.

Wow! I've had trouble with my ear for a couple of years and a bad experience with ear stringing. Then I found out about ear suctioning. The lady was so professional and such a pleasant experience, I was laughing through the process. I would 100% recommend this company! Worth every penny! Thank you for helping me hear clearly again.
