Prospect Health are handling a recruitment drive in the UK on behalf one of the Gulf region's newest private healthcare groups, located in Manama, Bahrain.

The Facility

The Facility is the newest private hospital in the kingdom and is dedicated specifically to the health of Women. The hospital offers a wide range of medical services including, antenatal and women's wellness clinic, bone densitometry (the detection of brittle bones), breast cancer screening and IVF.

The Location

Bahrain has long been a hotspot for expats, with a small population and resting between Saudi Arabia and Qatar in the Arabian Gulf. Like Dubai or Abu Dhabi it has a liberal approach to life but unlike the Emirates it is substantially cheaper to live making saving easier. Unlike other Middle Eastern countries, Bahrain has its own democratically elected parliament as well as local councils. However it is the King's rule that is absolute, therefore parliament rulings do not always become law. Bahrain's legal system combines Islamic law with English common law. Alcohol is forbidden for Muslims, but in Bahrain, it is available to others over the age of 18. Expats can buy alcohol at special outlets that are located away from residential and school areas. The government oversees club membership and the process of joining may take a while. But many expats consider it worth it as it places them in the vicinity of likeminded individuals, including locals.
