My son who is 2 years and 9 months is saying very few words due to hearing problems (glue ear) and despite this being a re-occuring problem and having had grommets fitted 12 months ago, this is not seen as a priority. I am now being told that a doctor seen 10 days ago has not yet made a refferal for a hearing test and even when my son does finally get this done I will have to wait another 2-4 months to see the consultant again. My son needs grommets again before speech and language can do anything to help him. All this will take upto 8 months and my son will be starting school in 18 months with no vocabulary at all. This is a disgrace. You are holding my son's development back What the hell do I pay my taxes for!
