A new pharmacy ear care service is being piloted for all patients registered with a GP practice in Doncaster.

Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent/ guardian when visiting a participating pharmacy.

Pharmacy staff will be able to advise patients on self care, treatment of minor ear conditions and recommend over the counter treatments or prescribe medication to treat common ear infections. Those with more advanced training will be able to treat patients requiring removal of ear wax to help reduce the workload in local GP practices. Patients will need to consent to the service being provided and to a follow up interview 5 days after the initial consultation to support the evaluation of the service.
