Hos­pi­tal di­rec­tors about to un­dergo job eval­u­a­tions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Di­rec­tors at Greek public hos­pi­tals are set to be eval­u­ated in line with the de­mands of Greece’s in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors, Kathimerini un­der­stands.

Ac­cord­ing to leg­is­la­tion im­ple­mented in early 2014, hos­pi­tal di­rec­tors are ap­pointed for three years and sub­ject to an­nual progress re­views.

The cred­i­tors are said to have ob­jected to the ap­proach taken by the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment, in­sist­ing there should be no po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ven­tion in state ap­point­ments.

Out of 180 hos­pi­tal di­rec­tors and deputy di­rec­tors, at least 15 have re­signed over the last eight months, while one di­rec­tor was dis­missed by the min­istry.

Riders take part in the 27th Spar­taki­ada, Greece’s most prom­i­nent an­nual cy­cling event, on Satur­day. The 257-kilo­me­ter race be­gan at the cap­i­tal’s Pana­thenaic Sta­dium and cul­mi­nated in the city of Sparta in the Pelo­pon­nese. It was or­ga­nized by the Hel­lenic Bi­cy­cle Union of Vet­eran Ath­letes.
