    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 visited Dr Hannan because I had balance problems. The consultation was pleasant and professional. Dr Hannan took the time to explain to me thoroughly my medical test results. He was extremely attentive to me and my concerns and scheduled a consultation quickly. Dr Hannan put me at ease immediately by explaining in detail the cause of my balance problems and arranging for me a treatment plan should my symptoms come back. I am extremely pleased with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone with ENT related issues.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    I had a really good experience being treated by Dr Hannan in relation to my long term loss of smell and taste senses . The communication with the practice ( 9 Harley Street Clinic ) was excellent , but the doctor himself has been very active in the process of setting appointments etc . This made it obvious that he is very concerned about the whole experience of the patients , not just the direct interaction with him . Although I was a bit skeptical about having our first consultation over the phone , I was very pleased with it . The doctor proved to be a great listener and asked the right questions . I knew is was in good hands . I felt his passion and his excitement at he prospect of helping a new patient to have a better quality of life . During the process he has produced and shared very accurate , detailed , yet easy to understand letters so that I can keep a good record of the process . Meeting Dr Hannan in person at the clinic was great . He is a warm , caring , optimistic , passionate and knowledgeable professional who genuinely wants to help . He beams good vibes . He set out to investigate the possible cause of my issues in depth , which has given me great peace of mind and much hope . I am extremely pleased with the experience and would highly recommend him to anyone with ENT related issues . Thank you Dr Hannan .

    I had my second consultation with Dr Hannan today, two years after the first. I found him to be exceptional. He found a slot for me at very short notice which i hugely appreciated due to anxiety over an issue. As with last time, he perfectly explained the medical issue to me in layman’s terms giving me the information that I needed to make an important decision, including answering my numerous list of questions! I find Dr Hannan to be an excellent medical professional but also a caring and compassionate human.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Hannan provided me with excellent care. He called me prior to our initial consultation to review my medical history, which he then recalled in detail at our subsequent face to face appointment at his Harley street clinic. Mr Hannan immediately referred me on to receive immediate surgical attention following the results of a scan he carried out, which was crucial to my overall care. Mr Hannan was attentive, personable and highly professional throughout and I cannot recommend him highly enough
