Medical School and Upgrade of Gozo General Hospital
The Gozo Business Chamber welcomes the news that the Government has today signed an agreement with the renowned medical school, BARTS of London, to set up a Medical school in Gozo.
Complimentary to this project, Government is also investing to upgrade the Gozo General Hospital so that it can take up to 450 beds. The new bed allocations will serve better both the local population as well as provide a new niche in medical tourism for the island.
Both these projects are much needed for Gozo as they will, not only uplift Gozo’s standing in the medical world but also be a source of job creation on the island. This will help to slow down and hopefully stop the haemorrhage of Gozo’s youngsters from the island.
While promising all the help that it can offer, the Gozo Business Chamber augurs well for the completion of these projects for the benefit of all.
