Hi all,

My little girl has had ear problems since about 4 months old and after a lot of ENT visits and ruptured eardrums we are now on the wait list for grommets through Southern Health (because we don't have private health).

Can anyone give me positive/negative experiences with how long they had to wait? She's cat 2 which is meant to be within 90 days but after speaking to someone yesterday she gave me the idea the wait is a lot longer.

I've been told you can get in quicker through some doctors but just don't know! The alternative is to pay $2200 to go private -

At the moment every slight cold or sniffle turns into an ear infection and a lot of sleepless nights/pain for her and stress for everyone. Her hearing is impaired and she has fluid on both ears.

Thanks in advance.
