The medical report was sent by Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Atta Tarrar which stated that the former prime minister is still unwell.
Nawaz suffering from severe cardiac disease
Nawaz Sharif is suffering from a severe cardiac disease, his latest medical report by the Royal Brompton Hospital shows. The Royal Brompton Hospital has issued three reports: Rubidium Cardiac PET-CT scan on three pages; Holter Analysis on 16 pages; and Echocardiogram on three pages.
Separately, Dr David Lawrence has also issued a medical summary based on reports by the Royal Brompton and Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals.
Dr Adnan Khan said that Prof Yasmin Rashid called him and asked for a fresh medical report which was provided duly.
“Mr Sharif has been recommended by the doctors to go out for short walks at least twice a day. He went out with his family on their insistence and as per medical advice but sadly the issue is being politicised.”
Dr Adnan Khan explained that Nawaz Sharif’s disease conditions are further confirmed and endorsed by UK doctors as similarly it was diagnosed initially by doctors appointed by the PTI government, recommending treatment abroad.

Earlier today, the Punjab government rejected the medical report of former premier Nawaz Sharif for extension in his bail. The Punjab government has also raised objections, directing Dr Adnan to send latest medical reports of Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Punjab Health Minister Dr Yasmin Rashid said that former diagnosis of Nawaz Sharif had been shown in the report.
She said that Nawaz Sharif is enjoying life, but his doctors say his condition is deteriorating.
“Nawaz Sharif’s bail for treatment expired on December 25. His lawyer Khawaja Haris sent the medial report on December 27. A meeting of the medical board was convened on December 27. There was nothing new in the report and only old things had been narrated which we already knew,” she said.
Dr Yasmin Rashid said that the medical board termed the reports incomplete. “Outing is not done in a restaurant. Maryam Nawaz also wants to go abroad to inquire after him,” she said.
