Re: Rise in user fees in Greece could reduce access to healthcare, charity warns

Dear Editors,

According to Dimitris Kontos, the President of Greek National Health Care system (EOPYY), 3,068,000 people have no access to public Health Care System, primary medical care or secondary hospital care.

A third of all inhabitants!

Greece is officially in a severe humanitarian crisis.

Competing interests: Dr Stavros Saripanidis is a diligent taxpayer who has been financing the Greek NHS for years. He is outraged to see such extreme, dangerous, humiliating shortages, and diminished accessibility.
