Greece -Health care workers on strike as hospitals are turned into health centres -September 15, 2013

Health care workers organise new industrial actions as reforms lead to eight Athens and Thessaloniki hospitals are turned into health centres and 1,618 employees are to be transferred. In the latest reform aimed at reducing the public health care budget by 25%, the government is reducing small hospitals to health centres or rehabilitation centres. Health workers say the cuts are jeopardising the quality and availability of public services, and will lead to a growth in private hospitals.
