I went to the doctor today expecting to be referred to the nurse to get my ear syringed. Now I have discovered that my practice nurse is no longer allowed to carry out this procedure and I have to wait 4 WEEKS to have this done at my local health centre. This is not acceptable. My ear is totally blocked and I cannot hear. Why do I have to wait 4 weeks for something that the nurse could do today or tomorrow? I am very upset about this!
