Abstract: The Nationalist Party has, for the last thirty years, strongly believed that Malta's future is that of a full member of the European Union. This decision is rooted in political and economic considerations. In this paper I will discuss why the medical profession should consider Malta's accession to the EU positively. I will also provide information that should dispel some of the common myths that doctors may have heard in circulation. had never been taken up in earnest by successive governments. The EU accession process has acted as a catalyst for reform and provided an opportunity to set the ball rolling. The reforms that are being instituted have been discussed and decided upon with the medical profession. Indeed, irrespective of the outcome of the referendum, a new order has been set. We should recognise the opportunities that the accession process has provided in this regard.
