(as a volunteer/advocate),

I called to ask how long the waiting times were for a child to see an ENT specialist at Canberra Hospital and was informed it was about 18 months.

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately we have a very high demand on ENT at the moment. There are other ENT surgeons who can see your child in their rooms with the view for your child to be placed on the public surgery waiting list. Alternatively, you could discuss this further with your GP who can re-asses the urgency of your child's surgical needs.

Kind Regards,


ACT Health
