The signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) heralds a further strengthening of what is already a positive and longstanding relationship between the two organisations. The new agreement allows for greater opportunities to extend patient care and professional medical services including clinical, education, training, research and innovation. 

Additionally, the signing of the MOU - at the globally respected Arab Health held in Dubai’s World Trade Centre - gives the official green light to establishing a visiting consultants’ programme and will build on visits made last year by doctors from The London Clinic.

“By working together and sharing clinical knowledge we can drive the delivery of health care to benefit many more people throughout the region,” said Mark Hawken, Commercial Director at The London Clinic. “Our consultants represent a wide-range of specialties and will be sharing clinical expertise not only to heal but also to educate and share skills.”                        

The London Clinic was proud to be part of the Harley Street Medical Area (HSMA) delegation at the Arab Health Expo to support showcasing London’s medical excellence.
