Dear visitor,

Thank you for taking the time to access the new website of our association.

The Association of Anaesthesiologists of Malta was established in 1983 in order to promote the knowledge, safety and expertise of specialists in the field of Anaesthesiology, Intensive Care and Pain Medicine practicing in Malta and Gozo. As the speciality evolved, the knowledge in this field expanded significantly and the role of the association continued to evolve and adapt according to the needs of the time.

Today, AAM has leading roles in the field of healthcare not just on a local but also on an international scale. Our members, who are over 80 in number, pay a very significant contribution to the health service offered to our patients, both on the National Health Service and in the private sector. We all strive to offer the best possible service to our patients. Some of us are also involved in maintaining standards in healthcare, such as our role in ensuring reliable training and accreditation of specialists, pioneering activities which improve the safety of patients and ensuring that adequate resources are made available to the speciality in order to be able to strive for clinical excellence. Our members are also well represented in the international fora and have leading roles in very important structures for global Anaesthesiology, including the European Society of Anaesthesiology and the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiology.

One cannot neglect the needs of the members themselves and under my Presidency, I would like to oversee with the rest of the committee, initiatives that promote the best interests of the anaesthesiologists themselves not just on a professional level, but also on a level that promotes the human elements that make up us anaesthesiologists. This is the best way to ascertain that the quality of care that we offer wherever we work is top notch.

I hope that this website would bring us closer to our patients, our colleagues in other disciplines and specialities and last but not least to one another as members of this highly respected speciality.

Once again thank you for the interest you have shown in our website.

Dr Noel Borg
