Kontozamanis: MPs Helping Out With Pandemic as Doctors Must Sign NHS Contract

November 28, 2020

ATHENS — Greek members of Parliament who wish to offer their services as doctors in fighting the coronavirus pandemic will have to sign a contract with the National Health Service, work a full-time schedule and face the same liabilities as other NHS staff, Deputy Health Minister Vassilis Kontozamanis said on Friday during the live coronavirus briefing.

Kontozamanis said the Health Ministry sent a letter to MPs who have expressed a wish to return to the medical field temporarily describing the process. He added that they should notify Parliament if they have not already done so about abstaining from their duties there.

As of November 24, a total of 21 deputies from most parties had declared their intention to return to medical duties.


ATHENS - Sending mixed signals, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is continuing to confound Greece's New Democracy government about his intentions after a NATO meeting in Madrid where he refused to meet Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
