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.

As a nervous patient Mr Hannam put me completely at ease. He was kind, understanding and thorough, taking time to explain my problem and possible outcomes. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

I went see to Mr Hannan when I could hardly breathe through the nose. He was recommended by my GP as a specialist who has a caring attitude. Having had nasal surgery twice prior to seeing Mr Hannan, I can confidently state that this is the first time I have had nasal treatment that has completely opened my nasal passages. The procedures were very clearly explained to me. The post operative consultations have been very thorough and the practical advice given on how to maintain a clear airway has been superb. I would recommend Mr Hannan without any reservations

From the very first meeting, I knew I had chosen the right specialist. I had an issue with my nose and had wanted it rectified for some time.. Mr Hannan was very welcoming, very attentive and explained what the procedure would entail... I found him easy to talk to and felt comfortable asking questions. Both myself and my Mum felt assured that I was in very good hands and had no concerns or doubts about Mr. Hannan. I subsequently went ahead with the procedure, which went very well and I was surprised by how little bruising there was...I had the dressing off the following week and to say I was absolutely delighted with the results is an understatement.. It was the nose I had always wanted and I couldn't help but admire it for weeks afterwards... I am so pleased that I found Mr Hannan.. He is such a lovely person and clearly an expert in his field - I genuinely felt that he wanted the very best for me and I couldn't be happier with the result.. I now have the nose I always wanted and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr Hannan to anyone considering a similar procedure

Dr. Hannan was both reassuring and accomodating throughout my treatment. He listened to my needs and ensured I received the results that perfectly fitted the symmetrical look I was hoping to achieve.

Mr Hannan was everything I had hoped for - patient, caring and professional. I sought a second opinion and so went to see him with my 9 year old daughter, and I am so glad I did.

Dr Hannan was so delicate with my insecurity and made me feel very relaxed to talk about my protruding ears (something that I had never done before as I was far too conscious). He was helpful, relaxed and very professional from the first consultation right the way through to the post-surgery catch up. I could not recommend this surgery, and Dr Hannan himself, enough! I used to read reviews of Otoplasty and wish I was brace enough so have it done. So when O heard about EarFold I jumped at the chance. The surgery has changed my life and I am more confident than ever.

I had a great experience with Dr Hannan. He cared for our 8-year old daughter for the last 2 years and, more recently, for me. Thanks to him, we did not put our daughter through surgery in the end as it was not necessary. As far as myself, when I lost hearing from one ear, he reassured me that there were solutions available, should my hearing not come back. Thankfully it did come back after 2 weeks! Thank you Dr Hannan!

I have seen Dr Hannan on a few occasions and i really like his enthusiasm. He is very thorough, his simplifies things to make you understand. I quite like his "Plumber" analogy. I really finally got to understand what i need to keep my condition under control when he used the "Plumber" analogy. I feel he is never out of my reach, unlike some doctors, you feel like you can never got hold of them. Dr Hannan really cares for his patients. The one thing I find that sets him apart from other doctors is that he listens. He takes time to listen to what you have to say. For me, this is a good quality to have.

I went to see Mr Hannan in September 2016 as a new patient. I was really worried about my jaw after an unfortunate accident. Mr Hannan put me at ease straight away. He is very knowledgeable and was thorough in his checks, always taking the trouble to explain things properly and in a friendly manner. You can tell he is very interested and passionate about his field of work from the way he talks about it and genuinely cared for my welfare as a patient.

Dr Hannan performed a sinus operation on my in December 2015 at the Royal Free Hospital. The surgery involved the removal of nasal polyps and a small reduction to the bone in my nose. He was recommended by a consultant from the Wellington Hospital. Dr Hannan provided excellent service throughout our interactions. The procedures were clearly explained and the operation itself went very smoothly. I was home that evening and recovered quickly. The results of the operation have been really life-changing. Before the operation I was struggling to breathe through my nose and was very susceptible to colds and hayfever. Post-operation I can breathe really well through my nose, even during a heavy cold. The procedures was really well executed and a success so I would recommend Dr Hannan to anyone contemplating Sinus surgery.

I would like to start by saying I have received private health care by different consultants and have always felt like I was not bieng involved and clearly listened to. This epic man (top, top fella) made me feel at ease and was happy in answering my questions. Having gone into the hospital thinking the cause of my problem was due to my tonsils Mr hannan explained to me that it looked like the issue may indicate another cause completely. He drafted a letter to my GP and explained that my issue may be all in my head thus saving me the risk of further complicated surgery and financial cost. What a top man. God bless him and the nurse who took blood from me and the very professional front of desk. I hardly write reviews but he is a credit to the proffesion. I am a verified patient. H ali.

As expected from a parent I was very anxious about my daughter having surgery but Dr Hannan was amazing at putting my mind at ease and keeping my husband and I fully informed of the procedure and process.

I would highly recommend Mr Hannan in every respect as an exemplary doctor both for his reassurance and compassionate bedside manner as well as for his knowledge and expertise as a ENT surgeon. He speaks to you completely as an equal and took into account my life circumstances when planning treatment, explaining every aspect of what was needed and why. He's very friendly and informal which immediately puts you at ease but very quickly you have great faith in his surgical skill. I recovered very quickly from my procedure under his care and he always took time to respond to my emails however small the query. Hopefully I won't need further treatment but if I ever do would have no hesitation in returning to see him, an inspiring doctor!

I visited Mr Hannan at the BMI Hendon after suffering worrying throat symptoms. His approach was considerate and reassuring . He took time to listen in detail to the symptoms asking various questions before making his diagnosis . Thankfully his initial diagnosis ruled out any sinister problems but this did not deter him from explaining in detail the causes and the actions needed to treat my condition. He also carried out the relevant tests to confirm his initial diagnosis.

We've just had our final check up with Dr Hannan. My daughter suffered from glue ear, which lead to some hearing loss. Over the past 24 months we've had hearing tests, monitoring, eventually a grommet insertion operation, check ups and now a year later, the all clear! i.e. the grommets are out and her hearing is normal range. So pleased! Dr Hannan has been a pleasure to get to know. He has a fabulous manner with children. Every test, procedure etc was fully explained to me. He is approachable, contactable and clearly excellent in his field of medicine. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Mr Alam Hannan was highly recommended to me by local GP in Courch End. And my expectations were exceeded. Alam was very conscientious and it was clear that he had a wealth of experience and technical skills. Alam was refreshingly patient with all my questions and challenges. My surgery was successful, having had 3 previous operations with other doctors for a perforated ear drum. Furthermore, my hearing has improved which is surprising bonus! Needless to say, I would also highly recommend Dr Hannan for anyone seeking ENT treatment.
