SUBJECT: Military Hospitals
RE: Our document No. 169/2024
Following our recent document in which we revealed the complete plan regarding the unification of the military hospitals which will lead, fatally, to their integration into the National Health Service, since the refutation of “circles” through informal information intervened, today we return with some details that we consider critical.
First of all, the “informal information” (which has already been denied by media of the defense report) only commented on the part concerning the NSS. In short, all the rest of our document was absolutely confirmed.
Secondly, we would like to ask the following questions, since, according to the very serious journalistic revelations, the relevant committees have not even been established. It is true that the conclusion that will be drawn, among others, is very likely to result in the following:
a. That all military personnel, regardless of Arm or Corps, will be served at the 401 GSNA, which will be transformed into an “interdisciplinary hospital for the active military, as well as for the officers of the S.A.”.
b. That all retirees will be served by the NNA, which will become an “exclusive hospital for retirees.”
c. That all military family members will be served by 251 GNA, which will be converted into a “protected members’ hospital”.
However, the above “reasoning” contains an inherent problem: is the reference to one “absent” from the above hospitals? Are there only three ED hospitals in Athens? Could this “absence” be related to some other consolidation that is allegedly being considered by the Ministry of Finance “in exercises on paper” during this period? Will the “fourth” hospital be the first to “go away” gradually?
We remind you that the “aggressive” integration of military hospitals by the National Health Service has already started in 2010, it has been burdened in the meantime by a number of reasons (such as the COVID-19 pandemic) and as the main means of strangulation the debts of the EOPYY against the military hospitals are used , which, in fact, are expected to be the subject of “regulation”. What, we fear, will not be able to be regulated (for it will be treated as a welcome consequence), will be the subsequent resignations under the joint Health Corps.
For the second time in a short period of time, we are publicly calling on you to stand up for military personnel and not participate in this long-overdue panacea of public health targeting. We will repeat that the problems are known, specific and can be solved with very simple actions:
a. Immediate disengagement of military hospitals from the NHS.
b. Immediate payment of all third-party debts to military hospitals in the context of their inclusion in the NHS.
c. Immediate institutional resolution of all individual problems (e.g. completion of the extension of immaterial prescriptions in all sectors, issuance of a KYA for the service of the military by all pharmacies, etc.).
d. Immediate release of the medical and nursing (and other) military personnel from obligations of “third parties” and their return to their organic positions.
e. Immediate resolution of the problems created by the new framework for providing medical care services to the military and their family members.
f. Direct support of Public Health with staff recruitment and strengthening of existing structures.
Also, we will repeat that military hospitals fall under special regimes. Donations from benefactors, statutory contributions, etc. are involved. Do not allow this well-organized “crime” to be completed. Public Health is not a luxury. It is a major, constitutionally guaranteed human right and we demand that it remain so.
We remain at your disposal for any clarification or information.
Messrs. Members of the Hellenic Parliament, to whom this is communicated, are requested to highlight the matter, through parliamentary control.
