Greek Hospital Doctors Protest on Wednesday

greek_doctorsA draft law setting up a new hospital payroll agency, the Hospital Payment Systems Company SA, triggered a strong reaction from doctors and hospital staff who announced protests.
The hospital doctors union OENGE announced that doctors will walk out on their jobs on Wednesday noon to protest against the measure and they are organizing a rally outside the Greek Parliament at 12:30 with the Athens-Piraeus Hospital Doctors Union (EINAP) and the hospital staff union POEDIN.
OENGE said that the creation of the new company marked the state’s complete withdrawal from public health system funding and dismissed the modifications made by the Health Minister as immaterial, finding that “they do not change the essence of the drastic repercussions for patients, hospitals and doctors.”
