State Hospital Nurses in Greece to Protest Systemic Problems on Tuesday

ATHENS – Nursing staff at public hospitals will stage a protest on Tuesday at the institutions' gates to celebrate International Nurses Day and highlight "the chronic problems of the system and the most important of the labor issues," they said on Monday.

POEDIN said that the National Health System needs funding and staffing. The current public expenditure slice (4.7 pct of GDP) can only be compared to undeveloped countries, it added, and is lagging the EU average of 7.5 pct of GDP. It called for "an annual permanent-position hiring totalling 3,000-4,000 to cover 1,500 annual staff attrition.
