Maudsley Health

Al Amal Psychiatric Hospital, Dubai

South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) is working with Macani, a highly respected Abu Dhabi based organisation with a mission to develop and extend high quality mental health care across the United Arab Emirates.

‘Maudsley Health, Abu Dhabi’ has provided mental health services in Abu Dhabi for almost four years. The approach is innovative and exciting and is generating significant interest across the Region.

In March 2018 the Service commenced a contract with the Ministry of Health and Prevention to support the development of a Centre of Excellence. This is a truly exciting and unique opportunity to be part of a senior and experienced team working to support the further development of existing services and influence and shape new services in great facilities. You would be working closely with experienced Director level staff from the Maudsley and the in house leadership team at the Al Amal Psychiatric Hospital. The Hospital has recently achieved JCI Accreditation.

As this is still a new and developing initiative a degree of flexibility and creativity will be required together with an appreciation of relevant cultural issues. Of greatest importance is the ambition to deliver high quality, evidence based services.

The ability to speak Arabic is an advantage but is not essential.
