What is ENT?

The ears, nose and throat are all connected through a system of canals and passageways. That’s why they’re combined in a speciality called ENT. 

The health of our ears, nose and throat are vital for our wellbeing, but they’re also susceptible to a range of problems like ear infections, strep throat and sinusitis.
