Citizens who cannot find a doctor in their area can wait until 01.12.22, when all specialties will have joined the institution and there will be a sufficient number of doctors.
4,000,000 citizens registered with the Personal Doctor today, a target that was expected to be reached at the end of the year, reports the Ministry of Health. This demonstrates the acceptance of the institution by the citizens, as the Ministry points out in its announcement.
The Minister of Health, Thanos Pleuris, has already signed the decision for the inclusion of all pathological specialties in the Personal Doctor institution, just as the reform provides, the contracts of which will be signed in the coming days and more doctors will be added to the system.
Given the very large participation of citizens, the imposition of increased participation on those who do not register with the personal doctor is suspended until 01.12.22, whenever all specialties will have joined the institution and there will be a sufficient number of doctors.
Therefore, in the areas where most of the positions of personal doctors have been filled, such as in Attica, the citizens can wait until the signing of the new contracts with doctors that will ensure the adequacy of doctors in the system and their easier selection by the citizens.
“The institution of the Personal Doctor is a free provision for all citizens who for the first time will have a Health Advisor for matters of health education, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and guidance in serious health problems” states the ministry.
