Medical assistance for Acropolis visitors

Visitors to the Acropolis in Athens as of Thursday will benefit from emergency medical assistance following the dispatch of a medical private to the ancient site.

The move follows a request by Culture Minister Costas Tasoulas submitted to Health Minister Makis Voridis for the transfer of a generalist to the Acropolis.

While the demand is being processed by Health Ministry officials, Defense Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos ordered the immediate dispatch of a medical private to the ancient monument.
