About our service
The RLF (Restricted Lingual frenulum) team consists of 6 practitioners. 3 paediatric surgeons, Mr Minocha, Dr Khizer Mansoor and Dr Shalini Singh and 3 RLF Midwives/nurse practitioners, Hannah Perrins, Chloe Langford and Jennifer Clark. Hannah Male is our RLF coordinator (admin). Our RLF Midwives/Nurses are lactation consultants/specialists in infant feeding so can support with feeding during the appointment and an all-round assessment of feeding is discussed prior to oral assessment. Appointments are usually 45 minutes in length.
The RLF team see babies from 3 days to 12 months, babies over 12 months may require a general anaesthetic if the procedure is required.
