Plevris: We Guarantee Everyone a Free Doctor

ATHENS – “With the changes we are promoting, we guarantee everyone a free doctor and free health benefits, for which the citizen has been paying until now. This is the new reality that we are shaping,” Health Minister Thanos Plevris said on Thursday.

Plevris accused SYRIZA of its failure in the primary care system that sent citizens to the private sector.

“SYRIZA is annoyed that the providers will now be evaluated qualitatively to be compensated by the fact that the citizen will have more free health services. For us, the focus of health is the citizen and his needs, for SYRIZA his ideologies, which lead them to deny any change, so as not to offend some. With the implementation of the new system, the citizens will see the difference. And these are the judges,” concluded Plevris.


ATHENS - There was keen investor interest in acquiring a 27 percent stake in Piraeus Bank from Greece’s bank bailout fund, which was oversubscribed as it will be the third of the country’s four biggest banks to be fully privatized.
