NEW GOVERNMENT CRIME AGAINST EMPLOYEES IN KEFALONIA

THE MANDZAVINATIOS HOSPITAL CLOSED IN LIXOURI

We call on all the people of Paliki and Cephalonia not to allow this premeditated crime to get flesh and bones!

A massive and all-out struggle so that we do not mourn victims. No one can play with our lives!

Yesterday, Friday 6/12/2019, at 3.00 pm, Mantzavinateio Hospital closed its doors for patients as there is no longer a doctor to call!

We are talking about a prescribed development that has been promoted for years now by the policies of both the former SYRIZA government and the current ND.

 The EC Mr I. had raised the issue in a timely fashion with a series of interventions and mobilizations. Governmental actors, Local and Regional Authorities, Administration and Management GNK 6 th DOE not only tried to get us liars, but had invented a number of arguments that were used to fool the people of our islands, when throwing responsibility on doctors who do not want to come to work in Kefalonia (!), when on personal terms between agents, when in need of no more Hospital or Kefalonia (because obviously we have to be happy to work at 50% the scheduled staff and a number of specialties the appointment goes up to 4 months later!), when we are on an island and it is difficult to connect with mainland Greece, when in the worst our radical … Of course never neither then nor now frontmen as take measures to permanently solve the burning issue of Health in the prefecture.

Typically, while there are dozens of gaps in medical, nursing, administrative and technical staff, instead of announcing ALL POSSIBLE POSITIONS, there were only a handful of Chief Assistant positions that were not covered by the policy, prevents a doctor from coming to live his professional and family life with a miserable salary, 30 callings a month and goes saying …

The logic of the “circus” goes on, that is, I am balancing the problem of Lixouri with Sami, Argostoli with the royal doctor of Vasilikades and so on, eventually creating huge gaps in all the structures with medical staff that makes it around the island , exhausted at work, family and physically.

Even now, we call on all the competent authorities to resolve without any delay, without hiding behind bureaucracies and other torts, in the following key demands made by the EC. K.-I. along with a number of other players:

  • Operate the Mantzavinatios Pathological Clinic with the recruitment of three physicians.
  • Restore the organicity of the Health Structures to the pre-2012 situation.
  • Establishment of all contractors and auxiliary staff currently working in hospitals.
  • Exclusively free and public Health System for all without discrimination.
  • Make all necessary recruitments of full-time, full-time and full-time staff at the GNN Argostoli and Laxouri Matzavinateio Hospital, Health Centers, Rural Practices, Mental Health Structures and EKAB.
  • Operate ICU and Psychiatry with all the necessary permanent staff.
  • Address the effects of the 2014 earthquake by fully shielding the General Hospital and Mantzavinatios building
  • Stop the “mobility” of workers inside and outside the county.
  • No de facto downgrading and no hospital mergers – elimination.

We call on the workers of Paliki, all its inhabitants and the people, to mobilize this day at the protest rally at 11.00am. in Lixouri Square.

8/12/2019
THE PRESIDENT THE SECRETARY
G. GAVRILIS G. VALENTIS
