    Hi guys

    So I’ve recently been looking into teaching in Abu Dhabi, but I’m not sure if it’s the right move for me?

    I have diabetes and take a few other medications and my medication is covered by the NHS.

    I have looked at school vacancies that offer health insurance. But I’m not sure what the health insurance covers. Will my insulin and medication be covered by the health insurance the school provide me with? Any info would be great thanks!

    Any decent school it wont be a problem, but the level of schools in the ME in general can vary so much, all the way from truly awful to ok. The decent ones then it really wont be a problem

    I think diabetes is pretty wodesprewi here, so I think all medical insurance would cover it. One of my colleagues has it and our insurance covered them.
