Our Clients are responsible for obtaining the necessary consent from Patients for us to process their personal data and special categories of data.

If the user wishes to contact or engage with a Doctor, Healthcare Pakistan maintains an online platform enabling the following activities:
the User to electronically make an initial and further appointment with the Doctor
the Doctor and the User to communicate with each other through a messaging system
the Doctor and the User to communicate with each other through a voice and video conferencing system
the rendering of invoices by the Doctor to the User
payment of invoices by the User to the Doctor
Healthcare Pakistan is not a provider of medical or diagnostic services. Other than maintaining the Platform, Healthcare Pakistan has no input, involvement or influence on the interaction between the User and the Doctor.
Healthcare Pakistan enters into a contract with the Doctor which governs the appearance of the Doctor within Healthcare Pakistan and the charges made by Healthcare Pakistan to the Doctor for the Platform.
