The paraplegics organization on Thursday backed the health minister’s efforts to resolve the problems plaguing the health sector and implement the NHS.
In written statement after a meeting with Giorgos Pamboridis, OPAK urged all parties involved in the project to show more responsibility and cooperation for the good of the patients.
“OPAK supports the health minister’s efforts to resolve the problems in the health sector and implement the NHS with the aim of upgrading the service to the public and better management of resources.”
On Wednesday, the cabinet instructed Pamboridis to submit a bill on the financial and administrative autonomy of state hospitals by July 15. It also approved hiring of 28 physicians to address the serious understaffing faced by the public health sector.
Speaking in parliament on Thursday, Pamboridis said autonomy could be implemented from the beginning of next year. He urged political parties to agree with the necessary reforms for the good of the patients.
