Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata on Monday attended the ceremony for the delivery of 50 ICU beds offered by the Greek parliament to Sotiria Hospital. Afterwards, she expressed her satisfaction and noted that KINAL had initially suggested that Parliament’s donation should not be just another financial contribution but used specifically for the creation of new ICU beds, with the parliament president accepting the proposal.
Gennimata congratulated those who worked for the rapid delivery of the ICU beds but emphasised the need to hire additional staff. “I insist, however, that its extremely important that they do not operate through staff transfers at the expense of other hospitals but with the hiring of new permanent medical and nursing staff, who must be trained correctly,” said Gennimata. Addressing Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, she urged him to take care of this as soon as possible, saying that the National Health System must be supported with actions while those working in the public health system should be included in the heavy and hazardous professions.
