There are so many fantastic things about living in Dubai but one thing many of us miss when living here is the good old NHS, at over 70 years old, the institution itself is older than the UAE. Having provided this many years’ service, the NHShave some pretty robust procedures in place for our healthcare, looking after us from birth and throughout our lives, it can then be harder to source the right care here, especially for our little ones and with so many facilities and professionals to choose from.

Here at British Mums, we have put together a comprehensive list of healthcare experts to hopefully make choosing the right Paediatrician for your children much easier.
