St Philip’s Hospital is a private, relatively small (75 beds) hospital. Our emphasis is on quality care.

Many of our patients are from the UK who are on the NHS waiting list waiting for hip or knee replacement surgery. There are no language barriers since our doctors, nurses, staff are multilingual. Maltese people are renowned for their hospitality. In addition, English is our second official language and this gives us an edge as our staff can communicate extremely well with UK patients.
We provide free accommodation for one relative / partner free of charge whilst the patient is in our hospital.

St Philip’s Hospital specializes in knee – hip replacement operations using latest implants and techniques. Patients should note that we only use high quality joint prosthesis such as Johnson and Johnson, Rotaglide, Zimmer or equivalent and that the price of these prosthesis is included in our fixed price packages.

Most prices for planned surgical procedures, such as hip or knee replacement cost around 30 per cent less than in the UK. Remember though that the European court of justice has ruled that all European citizens who have been on the NHS waiting list for a considerable amount of time, are entitled to reimbursement if they opt to receive treatment in a European country such as Malta

Please ask about our all inclusive fixed price packages with UK Trained Cosmetic Specialists for Breast Jobs, Breast Enlargement, Breast Implants, Face Lift, Eye Lid surgery, Nose Jobs, BAAPS
