We provide a tongue tie service on the NHS at the Royal Bolton Hospital which is based on the postnatal ward in the Maternity Unit.
This midwife led clinic is provided by the Infant Feeding Specialist Service and is available to assess and offer treatment (frenulotomy) for infants with a tongue tie which is causing a feeding problem. Referrals will be accepted for breastfeeding and bottle feeding babies who have received care from a Bolton NHS Foundation Trust member of staff.
Infants must be 12 weeks of age or less at attendance in the clinic, or 12 weeks corrected if delivered prematurely.
Please speak to your midwife or health visitor if you have any concerns regarding feeding your baby. They can send a referral for an appointment.
If you need to speak to one of the specialist feeding team then please contact us on tel: 01204 390423.
