Hear for Norfolk, formerly known as the Norfolk Deaf Association, has invested £70,000 in a mobile clinic which will allow it to take its ear wax suction service on the road.

Initially only available at the charity’s headquarters on Meridian Way, near Broadland Business Park, the investment means vulnerable people who cannot access the base will also be able to have the treatment - which costs £40 but is free if you are referred through your GP

Aliona Derrett, chief executive of the charity, said: “Running a high quality, safe and accessible service is a key priority and we have recruited a small team of highly-experienced nurse practitioners who operate the microsuction equipment.

“We are looking forward to getting on the road and providing a top-quality ear wax removal service for our patients.”

The service has been made possible with support from the Paul Bassham Trust, the Goodman Trust, Norwich Consolidated Charities and the Clothworkers’ Foundation, with the van supplied by Holden Renault in Norwich.
