LAHORE: The specialised healthcare and medical education department on Friday constituted a nine-member special medical board to examine the documents submitted as medical reports of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif by his physician Dr David Lawrence.
The board convened by professor of medicine Dr Mohammad Arif Naeem has been constituted on the instructions of the federal cabinet to examine the reports submitted by Mr Sharif’s physician and render expert medical opinion regarding the patient’s physical condition and his ability to travel back to Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif had left for the UK in November 2019 after the Lahore High Court granted him a four-week bail for his treatment.
The board members are Prof Dr Ghiasun Nabi Tayyab, Prof Dr Saqib Saeed, Prof Dr Shahid Hameed, Prof Dr Bilal S. Mohydin, Prof Dr Ambareen Hamid, Prof Dr Shafiqur Rehman, Prof Dr Moona Aziz and Dr Khadija Irfan Khwaja.
The board has been directed to submit its report/expert medical opinion to the specialised healthcare secretary within five days.
