I am a consultant in the NHS with a minimal private practice. I have worked as a consultant for 13 years and have extensive experience in managing a variety of cases. My areas of interest are: Impact of trauma and Physical ill health on mental health Depression Bipolar affective disorder Psychotic illnesses including schizophrenia Anxiety, OCD and stress related disorders Transcultural issues Medically Unexplained symptoms Medico-legal issues Fitness to practice I am multi-lingual and fluent in in Urdu, Hindi and Kannada with working knowledge of Arabic. My experience in specialities of psychiatry such as forensic, community, tele-psychiatry, private (mainly General Psychiatry), CQC (Care Quality Commission-Second Opinion Appointed Doctor), medico-legal etc, gives me a wide range of expertise. It equips me with knowledge and experience to work both in specialist as well as generic services within psychiatry. I write expert reports for Mental Health Review Tribunals, Immigration Appeals Cases, Ministry of Justice, Courts, Crown Prosecution Service, Solicitors, Special Immigration Appeals Panel (SIAC), the Parole Board and a whole range of other Criminal Justice agencies.
Dr Saleem was very professional and has helped me and my doctor know what is needed to help restore me to a positive health. He listened, gave advice and offered reassurance
For the first time I felt someone really listened to what was happening to us. He made my husband feel as though his issues were valued and offered us direction as to where we can access help from locally
Saleem possesses excellent clinical knowledge and skills in psychiatry and is very hard-working and has always shown empathy for his patients. His areas of interest are Impact of trauma and physical ill health amongst other things and writing expert reports for courts.I strongly recommend him.
I was pleasantly surprised with the level of support and the the follow up communications which has helped me get a better understanding of my condition and the tools in which to conquer it. Dr. Saleem and his team were understanding and were able to help me understand what is going on during a time I needed it the most.
I received great support by both Dr Saleem as well as Jo Tierney the medical secretary during my time of therapy and as a result have begun to deal with a very long term problem. Dr Saleem's patience and calm approach gave me the opportunity to express the difficulties I have faced. I was given the chance to stay in contact outside appointment time via email,phone and text message which was a great help and showed a tireless commitment to providing support. I would easily and without hesitation recommend Dr Saleem to anyone looking into starting therapy. D.Sisman
