Tonsil Service 

 

Tonsillectomy is a common ENT operation. At your appointment you will be assessed to ensure that you meet the criteria for tonsillectomy.

All patients between the ages of seven and 30 years old who are referred for tonsillectomy are now seen at the nurse led tonsil service, based in Monklands Hospital.

This service is run by Sister Mary Wilson.

At your appointment you will be assessed to ensure that you meet the criteria for tonsillectomy. This is done through the application of Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) (No 34), available on the website: www.sign.ac.uk

If you do meet the criteria you will be listed for surgery, pre-assessed and where possible provided with a date for your operation.
