The Hospital does not provide accommodation facilities for the attendants of the patients. However, the ‘Musafirkhana’ of the Muhammad Bibi Trust and Maggoo Trust located in the near vicinity of the Hospital extend free accommodation for the registered indigent patients of SKMCH & RC. Free transport to and from the ‘Musafirkhana’ at designated times is also available. Booking forms for the ‘Musafirkhana’ may be obtained from the Main Reception.
Due to capacity constraints, only one attendant is allowed to accompany the patient to the Hospital. Attendants suffering from any contagious disease are advised to refrain from coming to the hospital.
The consumption of food is restricted to designated areas such as cafeterias and Inpatient rooms due to risk of infection and in an effort to control the spread of insects and pests in the Hospital premises.
SKMCH & RC has provided a smoke free environment for its employees. Smoking is prohibited in SKMCH & RC premises, including all its buildings and grounds.
A pay phone is available outside the Outpatient Area.
Wheelchairs and Stretchers
Wheelchairs and stretchers are available for use by patients in the Outpatient Area. Please ask the Main Reception Staff or Administration Staff if you need a wheelchair or stretcher or need assistance in transporting the patient to any of the clinical areas within the hospital.
You may obtain a copy of your patient’s reports from the Medical Records Department located in the basement. Requests for medical summary of your patient for referral purposes can be deposited at the Medical Records Department too.
All non-essential items are to be deposited with the security guards at the entrance of the Hospital. No flowers or fruits for patients are allowed within the Hospital due to risk of infection.
It is estimated that about 150,000 new cancer cases are diagnosed in Pakistan each year. SKMCH & RC was built with the mission of providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic facilities for cancer patients irrespective of their ability to pay. Our resources however, allow us to accept only a fraction of this number for treatment. Therefore, the Hospital has to prudently manage its resources by accepting those cases that benefit the most from treatment. The Hospital has locations in Lahore, Karachi, and Peshawar for screening and accepting patients on financial support. For further information, please contact Financial Support Services or the Outpatient Department. You can also find more information by clicking here.
Treatment Cost Estimates
Treatment costs of patients vary significantly from case to case. They depend on a number of factors including the stage of the disease, treatment modalities, complications, patient’s physical condition and response to the treatment amongst some of the others. Accurate treatment costs can only be ascertained after the initial visit with the consultant after the treatment plan has been drawn up. You are advised to visit the Business Services Office in the Outpatient Area for obtaining a cost estimate for treatment after your first consultation.
