Health Min­is­ter Ado­nis Ge­or­giadis has vowed to pay a sur­prise visit to at least one state hos­pi­tal per week de­spite be­ing jeered yes­ter­day when he in­spected Aghia Olga Hos­pi­tal in Athens. Ge­or­giadis played the hos­tile re­cep­tion down as “a mi­nor in­ci­dent by a mi­nor­ity, which does not rep­re­sent most Greeks.” “When I go some­where unan­nounced so those on the far left do not have a chance to gather, I never have any prob­lems,” he in­sisted. “When oth­ers find out I am go­ing, they want to make a show of it.” Ge­or­giadis said he wants to keep car­ry­ing out the vis­its so he can speak to pa­tients and find out from them what prob­lems they are fac­ing.
