Maltese hotels and hospitals link with UK medical tourism agency


In an effort to expand the local niche market of medical tourism, The Palace and The Victoria hotels have teamed up with private hospitals, Prestige Cabs and UK medical tourism agency Linda Briggs.

Linda Briggs will arrange for British medical tourists seeking medical treatment in Malta to stay at The Palace and the Victoria hotels for pre-surgery and post surgery recovery. For certain treatments, Linda Briggs will also fly in leading surgeons from France and other European countries.

Together with its local partners, Linda Briggs is promoting Malta as a five-star medical destination, offering a complete service to patients needing surgery. As part of an added service to customers, Linda Briggs is offering insurance cover underwritten at Lloyds of London that will cover travel and some costs related to surgery, as well as any emergency treatment needed in Malta during recovery.

Linda Briggs comments “For this venture to succeed, we needed partners who are committed and who will leave no stone unturned to provide the high level of service that is now expected in this sector.”

Discovery Channel recently filmed a programme showing the positive side of cosmetic surgery, and featuring a Botox® party at the Limes Bar at the Fortina Spa Resort in Malta. The event was organised by Linda Briggs.

There have been many historic links between Malta and the UK, and a long standing link between Malta and Italy. A more recent link is the Malta/France one with more French people traveling, retiring or even setting up businesses in Malta. Malta is still working out how to best take advantage of these links in developing cosmetic and medical tourism.
