Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Health in­spec­tors are to be­gin ex­ten­sive checks on public hos­pi­tals with the aim of un­cov­er­ing pos­si­ble over­charg­ing for sup­plies, it was re­vealed yesterday.

The head of the Body of In­spec­tors for Health and Wel­fare Ser­vices (SEYYP), Stavros Evan­ge­latos, re­ceived in­struc­tions from the gov­ern­ment yesterday to track down cases of cor­rup­tion in public healthcare. Among the items that the in­spec­tors will be look­ing out for are fil­ters for dial­y­sis ma­chines and ra­dio­phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals. The in­spec­tors have also been told to in­spect equip­ment pur­chased by state hos­pi­tals but not yet used.

Al­ter­nate Health Min­is­ter Pav­los Po­lakis pledged yesterday that the coali­tion would over­haul the sys­tem for hos­pi­tal sup­plies.
