Nearly 5 year old refused funding for grommets

DS1 has had ear infections since he was tiny. We finally got a referral to the paediatric ENT consultant who recommended grommets. We've just had a letter through saying they won't fund it.

He's had 2 hearing tests which show his hearing isn't as it should be...what more do they want?

I will call the consultant tomorrow but wondered if anyone had any experience?

I would contact your local PALS and ask them to assist you here - and yes call the consultant to find out what is going on. Sounds like a very unreasonable decision to me.

Yes we got turned down because DS only failed two not three hearing tests. I was so upset I cried in the consultant's office (no sleep for a year!). They relented and DS has been fine ever since (3 yrs ago). Can't post more as battery failing but it's been worth the fight.
