Welcome to ENTchild: A source of information for parents and guardians of children with Ear, Nose and Throat problems.
Ear Nose and Throat problems are very common in children. In fact, half of all children visiting their General Practitioners will do so because of ENT problems. Practically all children will have at least one ear infection, grommet surgery is one of the commonest procedures in children, and both hearing problems and breathing problems can have a major impact on the quality of life of children and their families.
