Healthcare Funding through NDSF
A newly built Gudja Community Clinic was yesterday inaugurated by Hon. Chris Fearne and Hon. Alex Muscat. This new community clinic will offer a family doctor, nursing, physiotherapy, podiatry and blood collection services, among others, to the residents of Gudja and the surrounding areas. Forming part of an ambitious plan to modernise health centres all over the Islands, this was achieved through financial support offered by the National Development and Social Fund.
Investing in modernised and better-equipped community clinics is important for the local health sector as they tend to be the first line of contact for patients. The importance of such community clinics scattered all over Malta and Gozo can be seen from the fight the Islands are putting up against the Coronavirus pandemic we are living, as they are being used as vaccination centres.
We wish to thank the collective effort of all the stakeholders involved in our sector, as the funds derived from the NDSF originate entirely from investment in Maltese citizenship, which, amongst other initiatives, is contributing to allow medical care and health-related services reach everyone more efficiently and on time.
