These parts of the body are actually the upper end of the airways system and are prone to viral infections, particularly in the colder months.

They have similar mucus membrane linings, which means they get similar infections; an infection, an allergy, or another problem affecting one of them (from ear pressure pain and strep throat to problems with your sinuses and constant phlegm in the throat) may also affect the others.

Occasionally medical procedures are needed, such as fitting grommets in children’s ears to minimise infections or unblocking nasal airways with septoplasty.

Although deemed small procedures, when carried out incorrectly, sometimes by inexperienced doctors, they can cause lifelong problems.

At Patient Protection we understand how difficult it can be living with the consequences of an ear, nose or throat procedure that has gone wrong.  We have the experience and expertise to help you get the compensation you, or a loved one, deserve.
