  • [01] Greek hospitals postponing cancer treatments due to shortages, Athens Medical Association charges

    Shortages of essential supplies and medication are forcing Greek hospitals to postpone scheduled treatments, including those for cancer patients, the Athens Medical Association (AMA) reported on Tuesday. It expressed grave concern over the inability of state hospitals to purchase the supplies they needed to operate efficiently and well, noting that both medical staff and patients have reported serious shortages that potentially endangered patients.

    Among others, the association cited the recent example of the Laiko Hospital, which was often short of cancer medication and last week had to cancel scheduled treatments for cancer patients.

    The head of the AMA George Patoulis noted that postponing treatments can seriously impair their effectiveness and always violates proper scientific procedure, in addition to subjecting a sensitive group such as cancer patients to great hardship, since they often had to travel great distances from rural areas in order to undergo treatments.

    "This situation is intolerable and cannot continue," he noted.

    [02] Education ministry condemns Golden Dawn's threats against teachers in Perama school

    The ministry of education condemned on Tuesday the jeering and threats suffered by the principal and teachers of a primary school in Neo Ikonio, Perama, by a group of Golden Dawn members headed by party MP Yiannis Lagos.

    According to information, a group of about 20 Golden Dawn members and Lagos started quarrelling intensely with parents and teachers ahead of the parents' meeting which was expected to decide on whether to allow 22 children refugees to attend the school.

    The meeting was held with the participation of the mayor of Perama, the teachers and the parents. Outside the school were parents who oppose the attendance by children refugees and jeered the mayor as he left the school.

    "The ministry condemns in the most categorical way the scuffles and threats suffered by the principal and teachers of the primary school of Neo Ikonio, in the presence of pupils, from a group of Golden Dawn supporters, headed by MP Yiannis Lagos. The school, which has been selected to teach children refugees, was invaded as the parents' meeting was getting underway. The group of Golden Dawn members invaded the school, without the necessary license, attempting to turn the school into an arena for political conflict," the ministry said.

    On his side, the ministry's general secretary Yiannis Pandis said the scuffles will not cancel the pan to send the children refugees to the school.
