South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust is working with MACANI, a highly respected Abu Dhabi based organisation with a mission to together develop and extend high quality mental health care across the Middle East. The service has been providing outpatient care in Abu Dhabi since 2015 and in Dubai since 2018, supporting the development of a Government mental health hospital. The Hospital mirrors the Clinical Academic Group (CAG) Structure in the Maudsley UK, delivering care through the following CAGs;

  • Addictions
  • Mental Health of Older Age
  • Forensic

Maudsley Health is now starting to progress significant developments across the spectrum of mental health care in the Middle East. The service works collaboratively with local partners and providers and is keen to further grow the reputation of being a premier quality mental health provider. As a result, we are looking for a range of mental health professionals. If you have a flexible approach, use evidence base practice and want to spend your time engaging positively with patients, we would be pleased to have an initial discussion with you.

  • Clinical Psychologist, Intellectual Disability, Dubai
  • Clinical Psychologist, Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service, Abu Dhabi
