    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.

    We had the experience of working with Mr Hannan for my oldest in terms of a problem with her nose. Honestly speaking, we really appreciated the effort Mr Hannan took to make sure my daughter would feel comfortable with the set up as well as the procedure. Mr Hannan is also a good listener where he would listen tentatively when you speak and what is more, he also thinks from the angle of the patients. He also takes the extra mile to explain the technical problem in a user friendly way and this clearly has the benefit of reducing the patients' anxiety. All in all, I will recommend Mr Hanan to anyone.

    Through a mix of very skillful questioning and listening Dr Hannan has been able to understand the complex context in very short time and in a pleasant way. Following the examination, Dr Hannan has explained to me the findings, shown them visually so it has been easy to understand the implications. I have left re-assured after the very thorough examination and with an actionable treatment plan. Thanks a lot for your support.

    I was recommended to Mr. Hannan by other family members and referred by my GP in connection with tinnitus in one ear. The initial telephone consultation, tests and follow-up consultations were all organised efficiently with great communications from Mr. Hannan and his team. What impressed most however, was the care Mr. Hannan took in listening, and the manner in which he explained the causes, the tests to be taken, the results and diagnosis and then his recommendation such that I had complete confidence in him at all times.

    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.
