UĦM to Mater Dei dentists: “deal only with urgent cases”

The UĦM Voice of the Workers has ordered industrial action asking dentists at the Mater Dei Dentistry Department to only deal with urgent cases.

According to the UĦM the Health Department is not investing in the Dentistry Department. Personnel is insufficient, there is greater need for promotion, and a change in structure.

UĦM had to resort to industrial action after it had sent various proposals to the Government in the past eight years and a meeting in July 2018 where they explained their vision to representatives from the Ministry of Health has not materialised into anything tangible yet.
