Getting an Appointment

Shaukat Khanum Hospitals in Lahore and Peshawar have resumed physical visits of new patients in all clinics/specialties in its Outpatient Department. This is being done while ensuring strict precautionary measures, which include the requirement for all those coming to the Hospitals to wear a face-mask. As far as possible and practical, patients should come alone, so as to reduce crowding in the building, and no more than thirty minutes before their appointed time. These outpatient clinics for new patients will function from 9 am till 8 pm, seven days a week, including both Saturday and Sunday. Telemedicine Clinics will continue to function as usual, ensuring that assessment and management of patients on follow-up continues, and we are able to review the results of investigations, advise on medication and determine the need for new treatment in the usual manner. The Walk-In clinics in Lahore, Peshawar and Karachi will continue to function as normal.

About Telemedicine:

Telemedicine involves the use of telecommunication technology to provide clinical services to patients without an in-person visit. It allows health care professionals to assess, diagnose and manage patients at a distance using electronic device and software. It is becoming an increasingly important part of the western world healthcare infrastructure, and over last few years near all leading hospitals in United States, such as Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General Hospital and Cleveland Clinic, and healthcare networks worldwide, for example National Health Service (UK) and Canada Health are utilizing telecommunication technology for delivering healthcare.

Recently, due to the ongoing COVID – 19 pandemic, many countries and leading healthcare systems all over the world have allowed telemedicine clinics, conducted by video- or voice-call, to temporarily replace face to face consultations. Telemedicine can now be used for new patient consultations as well as for follow-up visits, management of chronic conditions, medication management, specialist consultations and a host of other clinical services remotely via secure video and audio connections.

Benefits of telemedicine include:

  • No travel expenses
  • No exposure to potentially contagious infections
  • Less time away from work and family
  • Privacy

Telemedicine is ideal for the following types of patients:

  • Those who are living in rural areas or isolated communities,
  • Patients who have limited mobility, time, or transportation options, and
  • Patients that are worried about exposure to potentially contagious infections
