Why Use A Private Hospital In Malta?

Dec 10, 2007
For people seeking cosmetic or other types of private medical care a trip abroad is becoming an increasingly popular option. Prices are often cheaper than the costs of private healthcare in the UK and healthcare abroad is often performed by practitioners that are equally qualified to their UK based counterparts. Added to this there is the likelihood that the person seeking medical care will be able to recuperate in a warmer climate. Many of the people that seek medical treatment abroad often find that they can cover the price of their flight, treatment and a few nights in a hotel for the same cost of private treatment in the UK.

Malta has become a very popular destination for private medical treatment overseas. There is a consistent number of cheap flights from the UK to the small island in the Mediterranean has a large medical tourism industry. The island is heavily populated and both English and Maltese are the duel national languages. It became a member of the EU in 2004. Malta became part of the British Empire in 1814 and has had a closely related history since. In the Second World War it was a very important territory as it was seen as the gateway to the Suez Canal and Gibraltar. It was an important battle station as it was close to Axis patrolled waters.

As a result of being in the European Union EU nationals do not need a Visa to travel to Malta. It is an extremely popular holiday destination for British holiday makers and increasingly people seeking private treatment. The doctors and medical staff on the island are qualified to European standards and you will find that many of the surgeons have been trained in the UK. In the St James Capua Hospital over 300 people from the UK receive treatment per year.

All types of medical treatments can be found in the Malta. Total hip replacements and total knee replacements are particularly popular. Bilateral knee and hip replacements are available as are hernia and varicose vein operations. Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and Hysterectomies are also performed regularly. The treatments available also include eye surgery such as cataract removal and lens implants. Alongside these surgical procedures there are numerous cosmetic options available.

The cosmetic surgery industry is thriving in Malta. Treatments are considerably cheaper than in the UK and the option of recovering in good quality hotels and the Mediterranean sun is extremely appealing. Treatments available include face lift, neck lift, upper and lower eyelid, arm reduction, arm liposuction, tummy tuck, lipo sculpture, nose job, breast augmentation and breast reduction.

Flights generally cost around 150GBP for a return and accommodation is often included in the price that the company that deliver the service offer. Often it will cost around 22GBP per night if you would like your partner to travel with you. The time in the country varies depending on the treatment you are seeking but most treatments will take a week or two in the country. A complete cosmetic surgery package that includes all food, accommodation and surgery will generally cost between 2000GBP and 4000GBP. Other treatments range from 1500GBP for a unilateral varicose veins treatment to 9000GBP for a bilateral knee replacement.
