ATHENS — Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias, who was visiting the island of Syros, on Friday announced an incentives programme to encourage National Health System doctors to serve on the Greek islands.
As Kikilias said, the programme will be implemented via a draft law, which will be discussed with local authorities and all those involved.
This will include financial, tax and educational incentives for the doctors' families if they serve in the specific areas.
In this way "it will become more attractive for a new doctor to serve on an island or a remote area on mainland Greece."
Kikilias was a keynote speaker at an event presenting the new digital transformation of the General Hospital of Syros.
