Midwife has better offer from another employer. Can I join them?

Hello everyone

My name is elaine and i have just moved to abu dhabi from ireland to work as a midwife. I have signed a contract but and have started to work but my work visa /emirates id is still being processed as the hospital was short staffed and needed me out beore it could all get sorted.

I was led to believe i would be working four 12hour shifts in a week and would be working in abu dhabi city where me and my friend have organised accomodation together.

A week before i was to come out i was informed i would   be in a different region that is linked to the hospital which is 40minutes away. When i arrived i was also only informed my work is 6 days a week 9-5 with only one day off and i would also be required to work on call.

I could potentially be asked to a new position but am not sure what would happen with my current hospital as they had paid for my flights out here and are applying for my work visa.

Sorry for the lenghty message but my potential new offer is offering more money, its close to my apartment and better work schedule

Hopefully someone can advise!
