The role of community pharmacies is increasing with rising demand for ear and hearing healthcare services due to an ever-increasing ageing population, exposure to loud music and the misuse of products such as cotton buds.

Many have added services and are playing an increasingly vital role in delivering care within our communities. Uniquely positioned in the heart of their local community, pharmacies are able to offer thousands of people in the UK suffering from ear and hearing health conditions faster and easier access to care.

How Tympa works in your pharmacy.

The Tympa System empowers pharmacists to perform digital otoscopy, microsuction wax removal using a suction unit*, and a hearing check, all in a single 30-minute appointment. What’s more, pharmacists can access remote advice and guidance from Audiologists and ENT specialists, when required from our unique ‘Remote Review‘ feature.

Offering unrivalled portability, the Tympa System is the most advanced, comprehensive, handheld ear and hearing healthcare device available to community pharmacy.

The complete ear and hearing
healthcare solution in your hand.

There has been an incredible amount of demand. Since we started offering the service, we have had full clinics every day. We have six one-hour slots a day with the last one finishing at 4pm, so that we can catch up with dispensing Bryan Kydd - Owner Ashludie Pharmacy, Dundee
We have traditionally been a community pharmacy focused on dispensing the medicine, and yet now we can dispense care, we can dispense health, we can dispense a better quality of life and that’s an honour to do that. The bottom line is this service is invaluable. Bernadette Brown – Pharmacy Owner

The Tympa Backstory

NHS ENT Clinician, Dr Krishan Ramdoo, witnessed first-hand how difficult it is for patients to access ear and hearing health services. His desire to ‘find a better way’ led him to develop the Tympa System.

Accredited training for staff


The TympaHealth Training Academy provides accredited training and support from the very first time you pick up your Tympa and is accredited by ENT UK, BSA and BSHAA.

*The Tympa System requires additional accessories to perform the microsuction procedure.
