Free Access to Greek Hospitals for all Ukrainian Refugees

ATHENS – The health ministry on Tuesday issued a circular signed by ministry general secretary Yiannis Kotsiopoulos, which provides free access to the national health system to all Ukrainians forced to abandon their country due to the war. The Ukrainians will be added to the uninsured vulnerable groups entitled to free nursing and medical care.

There are already recorded cases involving people with long-term conditions, such as cancer or diabetes, who have received medical treatment.

Until they receive their social security number as third-country nationals, these patients will have direct access to hospitals and health centres by showing their passport, or if they don’t have one, an identity document issued to them by the police.


ATHENS - Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias will leave for Albania on Monday, May 23 to meet with members of the Greek national minority from Himarra and the Archbishop of Tirana, Durres and all Albania Anastasios, according to a foreign ministry's statement.
