Dr Adnan Khan, Nawaz Sharif’s physician, has said outside the London Bridge Hospital that Prof Simon Redwood of the London Bridge Hospital had recommended hospital admission for the former prime minister to undergo angiogram followed by further intervention. Nawaz Sharif visited the hospital with his brother Shahbaz Sharif and son Hussain Nawaz on Monday.
Dr Adnan, briefing the media, said that Nawaz Sharif was attending the hospital on appointment. He had attended the nearby Guy’s hospital last week for blood tests.
Dr Khan said that Prof Simon Redwood is considered as a world authority on cardiac intervention and his recommendations are based on the medical record of Nawaz Sharif. Dr Khan further said: “He went through the whole medical history of Nawaz Sharif and has recommended that Mr Sharif requires cardiac intervention. The doctor has gone through all details of recent critical medical issues faced by Mr Sharif. Prof Redwood believes that Mr Sharif should be admitted in the hospital for procedure.” Dr Adnan Khan said that all issues related to Nawaz Sharif’s health need to be addressed. He said Nawaz Sharif will go for PET scan on Thursday.
He said: “Once he has gone through all haematological investigations, we will then have a clear picture of what is required next and what the exact treatment should be.” Shahbaz Sharif, speaking to media, said that Nawaz Sharif’s treatment will start once the doctors establish the real causes of his illness. He said that he will not respond to comments made by Sheikh Rasheed about the health of former prime minister. “I can only pray for the mental well being of Sheikh Rasheed.”
