Dr Salman Ghani
Consultant Respiratory Physician
BSc, MB BS, MRCP (London), FRCPI (Ireland), FCCP (USA)
I have been a Consultant Respiratory Physician at Solihull Hospital and Birmingham Heartlands since April 2005. I am the Respiratory lead for Solihull Hospital, running three Respiratory clinics, and chairing weekly Respiratory Radiology meetings. I am also the deputy lead lung cancer physician in University Hospitals Birmingham, and chair of the interstitial lung disease multi-disciplinary team.
As a result of a successful integrated approach to care, the community respiratory team was awarded for innovation in respiratory care by IMPRESS, a joint initiative between the British Thoracic Society and General Practice Airways Group, aimed at improving and integrating respiratory services.
I also received staff recognition at the Heart of England charity community award in 2011 for developing respiratory community services. I am a core member of Sandwell, Birmingham & Solihull Respiratory Clinical Network and actively participate in finalising Pan Birmingham Diagnosis and management of COPD and Asthma guidelines.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Salman Ghani at Spire include:
I am married and have three daughters. I love fish keeping and have three aquariums at home where I keep different varieties of tropical fish, including angel and discuss fish.
