Healthcare will yet again be among the priorities for each and every Greek citizen. The health system has been a ''victim to the memorandum and austerity policies''.

The statement was made by Greek PM Alexis Tsipras who further explained that ''large efforts will be made on the part of the Greek government in the social sector and will begin in the healthcare sector''. He added that additional 4,500 doctors will be employed immediately.

''We will remove the obligatory EUR 5 payment for a medical check in government hospitals because every citizen has the right of medical treatment,'' stated Tsipras during his visit at the local Healthcare Ministry.

He put emphasis on the problem with corruption in the sector.

''Citizens are our priority and we will not tolerate any corruption in healthcare,'' Tsipras said. ''We will not tolerate any misuse of people's pain.''

Asked about the prices and variety of medicines offered in the country, he stated that special attention will be put on the Greek pharmaceutical industry.
