    About

    Mr Hannan is an expert ENT physician and surgeon. He qualified from King’s College London, where he received the Negus-Cawthorne Prize in Otorhinolaryngology and the national undergraduate prize of the British Association of Otorhinolaryngologists. He then went on to officially pursue postgraduate training in Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. In 2009, after completing his higher surgical training, Mr Hannan was appointed to the consultant staff at the prestigious Royal National Throat, Nose & Ear Hospital, considered as an international centre of excellence for its treatment of all ENT conditions. He now provides a full elective and emergency ENT service for both adults and children, and specialises in fields of Rhinology and Facial Plastic Surgery. With his NHS base firmly established in North Central and North West London, Mr Hannan seeks to replicate his first class ENT service for patients in the private sector.       

    By many of his patients and colleagues, Mr Hannan is considered to be a modern and progressive consultant. He regularly receives excellent feedback on his exceptional listening skills and refined technical ability, and his services come highly recommended. This is no doubt due to the fact that Mr Hannan makes it a priority to keep up to date with latest treatments and techniques, whilst also refining the more artistic but integral aspects of medicine such as communication and trust. Beyond such innate professional desire to always be better in providing safe, patient-centred, high quality care, Mr Hannan enjoys dedicated roles in teaching and training, and collaborates in cutting-edge clinical research.

    I first spoke to Mr Hannan on the phone to discuss my symptoms, and I was then invited for a consultation in his practice. I was seen within a few days, Mr Hannan performed a nasal endoscopy painlessly, and was very thorough and sympathetic. He listened to my concerns and answered all my questions and made me feel very positively about the treatment, and made it clear that he was available throughout the course of treatment. He diagnosed me with nasal polyps and prescribed steroid medication. After a month I came back for a follow-up and my condition significantly improved. I definitely recommend Mr Hannan.

    The experience with Mr. Hannan was excellent. He was friendly and enthusiastic, which was really appreciated and made me feel at ease. He explained everything in detail both in terms of the procedure itself, but also the underlying process going on as to why I needed it. It made me feel at ease. The procedure itself was very quick and handled expertly. All in all a great experience - exactly what all medical care should be like!

    During my training years, Alam was always someone I looked up to for his inspirational qualities, honesty, patience with junior trainees and his way of always putting patients first. I am now fortunate to count Alam as my consultant colleague at UCLH for which I am hugely grateful. Patients can see him knowing that they will be managed in the most up to date and appropriate way by someone who is caring and trustworthy. A fantastic colleague.
