Welcome to the Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners

Welcome to the Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners

Updated 16.01.2019
Recently the ATP sought clarification about whether registration with the CQC was necessary and as a result legal advice was taken.

Because of this advice some practitioners have chosen to voluntarily suspend their frenulotomy (division) services following advice from the legal team.

Some practitioners have suspended their services until clarification from the CQC is received. Some practitioners remain unaffected as they are CQC registered. Many others can also continue to practice based on their own communication with the CQC. Contact your local practitioner for details.

We are acutely aware of the impact this will have on families and our members and have a legal team working with us to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. We will keep you updated via our website.

More details will be available in the New Year but we thought you would appreciate the date for your 2019 diary.

Whether you are a parent or a health care provider, we hope you will find our website helpful in accessing all of the information you need about tongue-tie and the support available.

The Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners (ATP) was set up in 2012 by a group of tongue-tie practitioners from the NHS and independent sectors with the aims of:

  • Increasing awareness about the effects of tongue-tie on babies especially with regard to both breast and bottle feeding.

  • Supporting parents of tongue-tied babies to access safe and effective care.

  • Assisting tongue-tie practitioners to provide safe and effective care through training and sharing knowledge and experience.

  • Providing resources and education for healthcare providers who refer babies for tongue-tie division.

The Association of Tongue-tie Practitioners (ATP) is also actively working to redress
inaccuracies in the reporting and documenting of the effects of tongue-tie on babies especially
with regard to both breast and bottle feeding.
