The president of SYRIZA, Alexis Tsipras, visited the “Agia Sophia” Children’s Hospital today, accompanied by the head of the Health Department of SYRIZA-PS Andreas Xanthos and the deputy head of the Social Solidarity Department Theano Fotiou.
Mr. Tsipras described as shocking the fact that the country’s largest pediatric hospital does not have anesthesiologists, with the result that 3,000 children are on a waiting list for surgery.
During a meeting with the administration of the Children’s “Agia Sophia”, the president of SYRIZA-PS accused the government of retrospective solutions which will not solve the problem of shortages.
On the one hand, the notices will take time, on the other hand, the movements will transfer the problem to other hospitals, stressed Alexis Tsipras.
Immediately after, the president of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance also spoke with workers about the situation at the hospital.
“If we do not realize as a society the need to support a strong public health system, we will find ourselves in situations worse than those here” he underlined, stressing that brave initiatives must be taken for the NHS.
