COVID-19 has brought New Zealand into lockdown. This will prevent NZ turning into Italy, USA or the UK but does come at a cost. Life still happens and children will continue to get other illnesses and niggles. Auckland Children's ENT is able to provide telemedicine consults to established patients through FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom to potentially save a trip to the GP. Clients of Southern Cross and NIB health insurers will still be funded for these consults.

No need to cancel those swimming lessons when your little one has grommets. 😀

Good article which I wholeheartedly agree with. Tongue ties are over diagnosed and treated by all manner of people, not all of who are fully trained to deal with complications.

New Zealand remains at the forefront of paediatric ENT and it was a pleasure to present our research in Cape Town at the combined 2018 SA ENT/WCA meeting.
