The Ear Nurse opens clinic in Spalding

Have your say

A qualified nurse specialising in ear care has started her new one day a week clinic in Spalding.

Jane Russell runs a Tuesday 9.30am-5pm clinic at Tonic Health, in Broadgate House, Westlode Street, and private patients can also see her at The Wellhead Practice, in Abbey Road, Bourne, between 9am-5pm on Thursdays.

Jane’s Bourne clinic opened in January and now she has added a day in Spalding to cater for more patients who may not be able to access services like ear syringing from GPs or face a wait of eight-ten weeks for micro-suctioning.

She also offers ear syringing and wax removal using specialist probes where syringing is not appropriate.

Jane said: “I am a registered general nurse (RGN) and I qualified in 1992 in Wales.”

Her work has included district nursing, theatre nursing, and, since her move to Dyke ten years ago, Jane has been an NHS community matron as well as a senior nurse.

Jane has a degree in respiratory medicine, is a nurse prescriber and first passed her advanced diploma in ear care 17 years ago.

She says the diploma is a qualification that must be updated every two years.

Jane does home visits for the housebound in Bourne and hopes to add that to her Spalding service.
