President Nikos Christodoulides on Monday met with Stavros Michail, chairman of the health insurance organisation (HIO), where they discussed needed improvements to the national healthcare system (Gesy).

“The president assured me of the government’s support in any changes which are to be made towards improving the services on offer to the public,” Michail told reporters after the meeting, outside the presidential palace.

He added that an update is expected within a month when the HIO, in coordination with the health ministry, will present a plan on how to improve the healthcare system.

Michail specified that some of those improvements will focus on improving the quality checks at hospitals, innovative medicines, and reducing misuse within Gesy.
