Abstract: Forty years ago Malta and Gozo were faced with a serious crisis because the Medical Association of Malta (MAM) clashed with the incumbent Labour Government headed by Mr Dominic Mintoff A. & C. E. and organised a general medical strike. The strike stemmed from the: 1. Inadequate salary structure of government employees doctors and specialists; 2. Lack of agreement on the shortening of the three-year obligatory work in government hospitals medical graduates had to perform before being granted the warrant to practice medicine. A MAM account of the action, ably authored by Mr Lino German FRCOG, had long been published.
