Only five doc­tors at fa­cil­ity

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Eight months af­ter a new gen­eral hos­pi­tal started oper­at­ing on the south­ern Aegean is­land of Santorini, only five doc­tors have been re­cruited to treat the res­i­dents and tourists visit­ing the fa­cil­ity, Kathimerini un­der­stands. Doc­tors at the hos­pi­tal re­fer to a se­vere un­der­staffing prob­lem which, they say, puts the health of both pa­tients and hos­pi­tal staff at risk. A mem­o­ran­dum sub­mit­ted last week to a pros­e­cu­tor on the nearby is­land of Naxos, un­der the ad­min­is­tra­tive author­ity of which Santorini falls, noted that the new hos­pi­tal on Santorini re­quired a min­i­mum of 21 doc­tors.
