More Than 4,000 Maltese Nurses & Midwives Go On Strike

Expect some patients delays and cancellations in the coming days.

The Malta Union for Midwife and Nurses (MUMN) has issued a five-page directive to over 4,000 nurses and midwives throughout Malta and Gozo, calling for a strike that is now in full effect.
The strike is related to several issues, including the introduction of the Electronic Verification System (EVS), appraisal reports, and robotic dispensation of medication.

The directives were sent to all hospitals within Malta’s public health sector, including Mater Dei Hospital, Mount Carmel Hospital, Primary Care Department, Karen Grech Hospital, Gozo General Hospital, St Vincenz De Paul, and elderly homes.
As a result of the strike, patients are already experiencing cancelled procedures, with lists, outpatients, and performance in casualty being impacted.
