    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.

    Mr. Hannan was the ultimate, kind and gentle medical professional that you could ask for. I went in for micro-suction of my ears after having trouble for a number of months with pain in my ear. Mr. Hannan explained in detail every step of the procedure and gave great advice for how to handle things moving forward. If I should have an issue with my ears again, I will most definitely be coming back!

    Ear Microsuction Blocked Ears
    I contacted Dr Hannan's secretary to schedule a consultation for a blocked ear that had bothered me for some time. He was very professional and made a thorough assessment over the phone before scheduling me in for a treatment already the next day. The practice on Harley Street is of highest standards and seem to have all the Covid-19 precautions in place which made me feel safe. Dr Hannan took his time and examined my ear before starting the treatment, making sure I was fully informed of the procedure and what to expect. The treatment room was of very high standards and he used a prefer method to remove a blockage from my ear that took some time and effort, making me feel 100% safe and that he knew what he was doing. I cant recommend Dr Hannan enough and if I would need any further treatments or health service in the future I would not hesitate to come back.

    I was recently visited by doctor Hannan and I have to say it has been an excellent experience. My father in Italy is medical doctor as well, so used to get appointments with very good doctors through my father when I was n Italy. This time I found my ENT consultant by myself because I moved to the UK and I have to say I was impressed by the courtesy, the respect of Mr. Hannan, by his competence and his patience in responding to all my worries and to reassure me. He made a thorough visit and explained everything very carefully to me so that I went home without any doubt left. He took all the time needed for me and he gave me the feeling that there would have been even more time if I had needed it. During the ear wax remove procedure he had been also very gentle and precise. Finally, Mr. Hannan was also very kind because he managed to combine an appointment for my wife too just next to mine, so that we could travel together to him from Reading with the minimum planning overhead. I just can say thank you Mr Hannan!

    Tinnitus
    I went to Mr Hannan to discuss an ongoing problem with tinnitus that had got progressively worse. On my initial consultation I found Mr Hannan very knowledgeable, with an excellent bedside manner. He was very generous with his time, explaining all the possible causes for my tinnitus and very quickly put me at ease. Mr Hannan was very quick to organise tests to identify the problem, starting with a hearing test, a physical exam and an MRI. Following my MRI it was discovered that I have an AVM within the brain. This is unrelated to my tinnitus but potentially a life threatening condition. Had it not been for Mr Hannan's thorough investigation I may have never been made aware of the AVM. It's only now that I am able to make steps towards reducing the risk of the AVM and seek further treatment.

    One of the best consultants I have ever encountered. I had an initial telephone consultation thinking I would then have to meet Mr Hannan at his clinic. It wasn't needed. Mr Hannan spent a long time on the phone going through my symptoms and finally diagnosed mild chronic rhinitis which I have had for 15 years. He took a thorough case history and most importantly explained my condition and taught me how to use my medication in order to manage my condition. I finally feel that I am on the road to recovery. If you can't travel to see a consultant, Mr Hannan is the one for you.

Mr Hannan is a dedicated, approachable and compassionate doctor who goes above and beyond, and work tirelessly towards his patients’ health.

His personal and professional approach is like a breath of fresh air. I wouldn’t hesitate to choose him again.

    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.
