Dr Omar Malik has over 20 years' experience in a wide range of general neurological conditions, as well as his specialist interest in inflammatory disorders of the peripheral and central nervous system.  His expertise is in multiple sclerosis, neuro-inflammation, strokes and headaches.

Training and Appointment 

Dr Omar Malik attended King's College Medical School, London where he gained five distinctions before obtaining his PhD from Cambridge University. 
He was appointed Consultant Neurologist at Hillingdon and Charing Cross Hospitals in 2001 where he combined a busy clinical neurological practice with ongoing academic interests in Clinical Neurosciences. 

Dr Malik manages the leading centre for multiple sclerosis treatments and multiple sclerosis clinical trials in the UK, at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
He is also actively involved in research, and has been previously involved in scientific research as a Clinical Research Fellow in demyelinating diseases, such as MS. He is widely published and appears in numerous peer-reviewed publications. His most recent research papers have been “A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis following whiplash injury: Is there a true association?” and “Development of autoimmune thyroid disease in Multiple Sclerosis patients post-alemtuzumab improves treatment response.”

Dr Malik is a trustee of the Multiple Sclerosis Trials Collaboration (MSTC), which was set up in 2004, to facilitate access to treatments and research for people living with MS.  MSTC aims to provide patients with MS with access to pharmaceutical-sponsored clinical trials, if they are not suitable for current therapies. The organisation also aims to undertake pharmaceutical clinical trials to devise and administer research-led clinical trials, which in turn offers greater access to potential treatments to a wider number of MS patients.

He teaches regularly in his capacity as Honorary Senior Lecturer at Imperial College School of Medicine and is Clinical Director of The UK Multiple Sclerosis Tissue Bank which allows people to donate their brain and spinal cord tissue for MS research after their death. This vital resource which, through donations of tissue, helps scientists around the world advance their understanding of MS.

Dr Malik was listed in the top 25 winners of their first UK Top Doctors Awards in 2018.  These awards recognise outstanding medical talent and the highest level of care in private and public healthcare as recognised by fellow doctors and specialists and have been running for a decade in the USA and since 2014 within Europe and Latin America.
The 25 winners were selected from nearly 2000 nominations across London as those specialists who doctors themselves would go to in times of need, and who they would trust with their own health or that of their family.

Current Practice

Dr Malik offers a regular clinic for outpatients at Mount Alvernia Hospital.  In addition, he is one of the multi-disciplinary team of specialists forming the recently established Long Covid Clinic at Mount Alvernia Hospital.  It was launched in March 2021 to support and treat patients suffering with the long-term effects of Covid-19 and is unique in offering each patient a bespoke treatment package, with input from a variety of specialists, who will meet on a monthly basis to review patient progress.
