    • Clinical outcomes are dependent on the extent to which you are able to engage in the test, such that clinical outcomes cannot be guaranteed.
    • Wax removal: the extent of wax removal is dependent on many factors such as the shape and size of ear canal and degree of wax compaction and depth. Complications may require additional paid appointments, for example to allow time for the wax to soften. We do not guarantee that all wax can be removed at one appointment. If there are underlying health complications preventing the safe removal of wax, our clinicians will provide alternatives (if available) and advice, however no refund would apply. We do not guarantee that wax removal appointments will address the presenting ear/hearing issue.
