Background Information 
Professional profile:

As a parent and a consultant paediatrician Dr Hany El-Nagger is acutely aware how important it is for parents to have rapid access to a familiar paediatric health service practitioner. He respects that need and will always respond to patients as speedily and practically as possible, in both his NHS and private practice.

Dr El-Nagger has been a consultant in paediatrics since 1992. Immediately before that he trained in the tertiary centre of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children (RHSC) in Glasgow for the period between 1987 and 1992. Dr El-Nagger thoroughly enjoyed that period even though it was well before the merciful days of the European Working Time Directive (EWTD).

In addition to his interest in the variety of concerns that general paediatrics has to offer he is especially fascinated by immunological disorders, particularly allergic disorders. Dr El-Nagger is actually one of a small group of paediatricians with specific qualifications in allergy.

The immune system is not only involved in our good health and allergy but also in some important illnesses including recurrent infections, rheumatology and many other organ disorders which can all happen as a result of the workings or lack of workings of the immune system.

With his neonatal origins, a special interest in infantile medicine has evolved. In practice he employs a natural investigative, patient, deliberate and unhurried approach to history taking to try and tease and collect those important clues about health in this early non-articulate but still communicative period of life. Hence he usually spends about 80% of the consultation time listening to parents and their babies. Dr El-Nagger tries to make this process as enjoyable as possible, even for older age groups who on occasions require help to recall relevant symptoms.

Personal profile:

Dr El-Nagger is married with four children, the youngest is two years old. In his free time Dr El-Nagger enjoys both non-fictional and fictional reading. He is also a gym enthusiast and poetry writer. As a non-professional writer Dr El-Nagger has to be moved to write. He is frequently moved by events, sights or thoughts about his wife, children or his patients. His writing pen is also frequently triggered by thought-provoking news, readings or the stars.
