On Tuesday morning, the President of Malta George Vella visited the Gżira Health Centre after reopening following renovation works.
During the visit, the President was explained the new services provided by this Centre, where 300 patients are assisted daily. These include physiotherapy, a baby health and child development clinic, and a postnatal clinic. The Gżira Health Centre caters to the needs of people living in the area from Msida to Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq.
President Vella also visited the Marsaxlokk Community Clinic.
At the end of the visit, the President remarked that over the years there has been an improvement and increase in primary health care services. He urged people to make the best use of these services in order to have control over their health.
“We always say that identifying early signs is important because it not only saves future costs for the country, but it also alerts the patient to be careful and make sure to address the situation rather than let it get worse and then only realise when it is too late”, said the President.
At the Community Clinic in Marsaxlokk, the President was accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health Chris Fearne.
