Experienced doctors more important than air ambulances
18 June 2012
Greece has many thousand islands to transport patients from.
Air ambulance doctors use helicopters and small airplanes to save lives.
Unfortunately, nowadays, due to personnel shortages, air transports are made by training interns or even by microbiologists!
This practice can be very dangerous for Greek residents, but also for the millions of tourists that visit Greek islands every summer.
