Malta: Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne congratulates new doctors at Mater Dei hospital
The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health Malta, Chris Fearne, met new doctors at Mater Dei hospital to congratulate them. He encouraged them to specialize in the fields which interest them to ensure the best healthcare services for our patients.

Around 105 new foundation doctors have been recently employed with the ministry of health after having completed their studies with UOM and other European universities. Whereas another 31 new doctors will be joining the workforce later this year.

Despite its tiny size, Malta has been considered to offer some of the best healthcare in the world. The World Health Organization has ranked Malta fifth among more than 100 nations for overall healthcare services. Recently, Numbeo's independent study of European nations found Malta's healthcare system to be second only to top-rated France. Malta has a robust public healthcare system, which provides free services to all Maltese citizens and European Union residents with a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

The island has several public hospitals, including a large one on the island of Gozo, and a network of health clinics and pharmacies that offer preventative, rehabilitative, and curative care.

According to several residents, due to Malta's small size, it is relatively easy to get access to either a hospital or health clinic when any individual requires it, irrespective of the place he is living in.

Furthermore, Malta also has two private hospitals located on the main island, and both provide a broad range of services, from blood tests to diagnostic scans as well as complex surgeries. They also brag about having the recent and modern medical technology, like 4D ultrasound, a complex digital radiology system, laser-assisted surgery and MRI as well as CT spiral scan.

Both the hospital are known for the excellency of their speciality clinics, Da Vinci Health, as it has several clinics, including a profound breast care clinic, dentistry department as well as and orthopaedic specialists.

Malta's health sector is continuously expanding and boosting under the guidance of its health minister Chris Fearne.
