Cleft palate and hearing loss – new video

Posted on: May 18, 2012

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of interviewing Scott, Siobhan and their 9 year old son Bayley who told me all about what it’s like to have a cleft palate and hearing problems. NDCS has launched the video this week during Cleft Lip and Palate Awareness Week 2012. Their Consultant Audiovestibular Physician also shares some background information on how cleft palate affects the ears and what happens in the specialist cleft clinic. Bayley has fluctuating glue ear and had grommets inserted when he was 5 years old. He tells us what it was like coming into hospital for the surgery. The only other thing you need to know is that he is mad about football!

With huge thanks to the Vaughan family, Dr Raouf Chorbachi, and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children for taking part, sharing their stories, and allowing us to video them.
