Immediate recruitment 300 permanent doctors in the Intensive Care Units
"I am tabling an amendment which contains direct recruitment 300 permanent doctors in the Intensive Care Units. The 200 are those whose processes are running and completed these days anyway and the rest are runners-up. Everyone will go through immediate procedures, that is, on Monday, in the National Health System ", stated in his position Mr.. Kikilias to then stand on the expansion and strengthening of the NSS.
"Apart from them, expands and strengthens the capacity of the NSS as follows: Those trainees who want, can serve in the National Health System, for the treatment needs of COVID-19. The time in the specialty of those who serve in the National Health Service is counted. Those doctors who are close to retirement age and are retiring on 31/12, can, if they wish, to extend the employment relationship with the National Health System for another six months until 31/6/2021.
Private doctors are given the opportunity - and I take the initiative with the President of the Panhellenic Medical Association, of the Medical Association of Athens and all the Medical Associations - to be able to serve the National Health System with a special employment relationship and compensation ", pointed out the Minister of Health.
Order of Private Clinics for a fee

"In parallel, which I think is an acceleration and a rapid further strengthening of the potential of the National Health System, I declare that the possibility of compelling - and where there is no legislature - private clinics is being extended, hospitals, labor relations.
That is, according to the clinic, by hospital or in their entirety. Their jurisdiction passes, if and when needed, to the Governor of the Health District with simultaneous utilization of the staff of these private clinics and of course, as everyone knows except some colleagues, this relationship may exist in the Greek State and legislation with the corresponding compensation ", said Mr.. Kikilias, who, concluding, highlighted:
"I would like, end, to conclude by saying that this effort that we are making is an effort that concerns and involves all citizens, all parties, all Members, all scientists, all doctors, all the potential of the country. Repeat, we live in unprecedented moments. I'm convinced that fighting, trying and struggling together we will succeed. And I ask you to accept and vote in favor of this amendment. ".
