Parliamentary Secretary Franco Mercieca declares he is keeping with the waiver granted to him and is in the stage of phasing out his private practice and will be stopping it totally by the beginning of September, Government said.
In a press release, it was specified that the work P.S. Mercieca is currently carrying out includes phakic implants and cornea cross linking operations; which can be done only by him, locally.
With reference to cataracts, Mr Mercieca is operating only previously-seen patients.
‘Mr Mercieca is one of only two local specialists who carry out laser surgery, and currently is training another person to carry out the said surgery’ Government said.
