Dr Jihad Malasi

Clinical Chair and Lead for Mental Health

Canterbury-born Dr Malasi practises from Dashwood Medical Practice, and started his medical career at Margate’s QEQM hospital.

Dr Malasi has a particular interest in mental health, and has extensive experience in the field of psychiatric intensive care.

With a keen interest in martial arts and climbing, Dr Malasi also has a background in emergency sports medicine, and has trained with rugby doctors at Twickenham. Married with three children, Dr Malasi is keen to use his knowledge and skill to benefit the work of the CCG. 

He said: “Thanet is an exciting area that’s blessed with wonderful assets such as beautiful coastline and cultural scene. But it’s also an area that has pockets of significant deprivation, and this is reflected in life expectancy gaps, child poverty and above-average rates of preventable disease.

“The CCG is committed to tackling these matters, ensuring that the people of Thanet are empowered to lead lives that are as healthy as possible. It’s a great privilege for me to lead the CCG governing body and play an active part in shaping the area’s healthcare.”
