Otitis media with effusion (OME) or glue ear has increased as a diagnosis in primary care over the past decade while grommet
rates have declined. When developmental concerns are raised by parents or the child is noted to have frequent ear related
problems, this often leads to referral and request for further expert assessment. Referral rates show more variability than
for other ENT conditions such as tonsillectomy, and may partly relate to the present relative lack of accurate structured
assessments in primary care.
