Jo Knight RGN, our new specialist ENT nurse.

Expanding our earwax microsuction services

We welcome a new addition to our professional team, to help meet increasing demand for microsuction earwax removal services.

Jo Knight, a Registered General Nurse specialising in ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat), joined us in September 2017. She now runs a new microsuction clinic on Wednesday afternoons at our main Colchester centre, alongside our audiologists.

Jo qualified as a nurse in 1982 with the NHS in Ipswich. She began to specialise in ENT and gained her microsuction qualifications in 2004. She has extensive and varied experience conducting the procedure in hospitals, community clinics, GP surgeries and private practice in the Chelmsford area, where she also runs an Aural Clinic at Broomfields Hospital. She notes that she conducted some 1,500 microsuction procedures during 2016.

Jo is married to Rob and they have three grown-up children. Her outside interests include walking, crocheting, art and ‘generally getting out and about.’ She says: ‘It makes sense for a private hearing aid clinic like The Hearing Care Centre to offer microsuction. It’s very convenient for clients who might have hearing aids as well – they are more in control and don’t have to worry about long waiting lists.’

In addition to our main Colchester centre, our audiologists will continue to offer microsuction at our Frinton and West Mersea clinics.
