The Hastings Health Centre is pleased to advise that Dr. Zahoor Khan has joined the practice as of 1st November 2017.
Zahoor is a UK trained family physician who qualified in 2004 from Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ School of Medicine in London.

Most recently, Zahoor was living and working in Abu Dhabi. He was recruited by Kings College Hospital London to help set up a multi-specialty outpatient facility with a strong emphasis on family medicine.

Between studying for a Masters degree in Healthcare Management and spending time with his family, Zahoor doesn’t have much time for hobbies at the moment! When he gets the chance he enjoys scuba diving, photography and playing cricket (granted not as well as he used to!). He is an avid football fan and a life-long Liverpool supporter. He is very much looking forward to using his spare time to explore New Zealand with his wife and young son.
