The regional health centre in Pachna

President Nicos Anastasiades pledged on Saturday that the national health system Gesy would be implemented within the deadlines agreed following the vote by parliament of the relevant bills, “even if some do not want it to happen and they oppose it”, he said.

Anastasiades was speaking during the inauguration of the Regional Health Centre Maximos Michaelides in the village of Pachna in the Limassol District.

He said that the government was well aware of the problems in the health sector and has decided to introduce all the reforms needed so that all hospitals and clinics operate smoothly.

He added that the government was cooperating closely with doctors` unions in order to explore ways of meeting their long-standing demands or problems and to move forward with the empowerment of the hospitals and the implementation of Gesy.

Anastasiades said despite the opposition to the plan, Gesy would be implemented as was agreed because this was what people were demanding and this was what the political parties had decided on.
