Ferhat: 'The Mitsotakis government is solely responsible for the collapse of the health system'

Rodopi SYRIZA MP and deputy head of the party's health department Özgür Ferhat said that the health system has reached a dangerous and uncontrollable dimension as a result of the wrong policy pursued by the government.

Ferhat said, "Due to the lack of personnel in hospitals and low budget, the health institutions of our country are collapsing one after another. Health personnel are forced to leave their professions due to unfavourable working conditions. In our hospitals, which have now turned into health centres, urgent surgeries are postponed and patients are stuck in long waits. In addition, clinics are insufficient due to staff shortages and especially cancer patients are deprived of chemotherapy treatments."

Stating that the minister is responsible for the deficiencies in the health sector, Özgür Ferhat noted that this deficiency is tried to be eliminated by doctors in the private sector.

Emphasising that the transfer of security, cleaning and now secretarial services of hospitals to private companies is the last straw, MP Ferhat said: "At this point, the reason for the collapse of the health system and the sole responsibility lies with the Mitsotakis government. The urgent actions to be taken are as follows; increase in public expenditures, recruitment of permanent staff and the staffing of contracted employees."
