Malta and Gozo have excellent medical care facilities. Medical care in general follows the recommendations of the World Health Organisation. Pharmacists are highly trained and have wide ranging prescribing powers, perhaps more so than in say the UK.  Most well known drugs are available here, but visitors with specific requirements should ensure that they bring an adequate supply of their medication and it is a good idea to bring a prescription along with you on your trip. All doctors on the Maltese islands speak English, and Italian is also widely understood.

Holiday Health Care

Health agreements exist with many countries including member EU states.  The European Health Insurance card replaces the old E111 form and makes it easier to get medical care quickly.  Currently, the EEA comprises of 25 member states of the European Union together with Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein.  Your European Health Insurance Card is evidence that you are part of a health insurance scheme administered by another EEA/EU  state or Switzerland, and is valid for use throughout any of these countries, including Malta and Gozo.   For more information contact the health authority in the area where you live before you travel.

Health Care Insurance

For added peace of mind, ensure you are properly covered - click here for more information about private health care insurance.


There are numerous pharmacies throughout Gozo, and most keep normal shop opening hours, 8.30am - 12.30pm, then 4.00pm - 7pm.  A duty roster of pharmacies are open on Sundays and this is listed in the weekend newspapers and broadcast on radio, and often displayed in pharmacy windows.
