How do I arrange my surgery? Linda Briggs will guide you through the process. All questions can be answered up to the point of any medical information being needed, to
confirm your booking. At that point, a member of the hospital staff will make contact with you, if you are resident in Malta, or we will have to
send you a medical questionnaire to complete for overseas patients.
Consultations take place regularly in Malta. Some are available in London.
Contact Linda for an appointment. For overseas patients, a preliminary consultation can be done by photographs and the final consultation will
take place immediately prior to surgery.
