King's is a world-renowned teaching hospital in London with over 175 years' experience, that is now fully present in the UAE. King's College Hospital UAE consists of the recently opened Dubai Medical Centres in Marina and Jumeirah, the existing Surgical and Medical Centre in Abu Dhabi along with the newly opened state-of the art 100-bed facility in Dubai Hills.
Ties between King's College Hospital London and the UAE originate from 1979, when a sizable donation from the late great, His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the UAE, helped establish King's liver research centre. That centre is now amongst the top three liver specialist centres in the world. In a demonstration of commitment to this unique relationship, Prof. Nigel Heaton who heads up our liver centre in London will be in the UAE every few months visiting local patients and giving them renewed life opportunities in the form of liver transplants pre-operation work up and eventually, liver transplant operations, available from 2019 onwards. Something not readily available here currently.
