TAGS: Health, Protest

Doctors who are registered with Greece’s main national healthcare provider EOPYY are gearing up for action in response to a government draft law overhauling the healthcare system.

Their union on Monday said doctors will stop seeing patients as of June 1 and until they are paid arrears from January in full by EOPYY for examining and treating patients.

The doctors are also protesting a measure in the new bill that is being drawn up by the Health Ministry which will force those working at public health centers to choose between private and public practice.
