LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will be treated at home instead of any hospital, local media quoted the Sharif family sources as saying.
Nawaz Sharif will consult doctors in London on Wednesday (today) about his illness.
According to Geo TV, he would be treated at his son Hasan Nawaz’s house and a room had been reserved for this purpose. “The room has been furnished with the necessary arrangements as advised by doctors,” it said.
As per sources, two doctors would review the reports and conduct checkup of the 69-year-old patient before beginning any treatment.
In Pakistan, the ex-premier had been diagnosed with an immune system disorder and doctors had recommended him to get treatment from abroad as his health condition was not improving.
Ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, along his younger brother and Pakistan Muslim League-N President Shahbaz Sharif, physician Adnan Khan and two servants, had arrived in London for medical assistance via an air ambulance on evening of Nov 19.
The air ambulance had a stopover in Doha where it refuelled and fresh medical and air crew boarded on the ambulance.
“The air ambulance with former PM Nawaz Sharif onboard landed in Doha, Qatar; will depart shortly after refuelling and air and medical crew change for London, UK,” Adnan had tweeted from Doha.
Later, when they arrived in London, he tweeted, “Former PM Nawaz Sharif onboard Qatar Airways Air Ambulance A7-MED has landed safely at Heathrow (airport), London”.
Lahore High Court had, in a verdict, waived the condition placed by the government to sign an indemnity bond before his going abroad and just made him submit an affidavit in this regard.
On Nov 19, Federal Minister for Science & Technology Fawad Hussain Chaudhry had expressed his pessimism about the three-time prime minister’s return from London after getting medical treatment.
Fawad Chaudhry had wondered if the other inmates also had the right to submit an affidavit for their medical treatment and get impunity from jail sentence.
