GOOD NEWS FOR A CHANGE

Athens News: ATHENS Mayor Dora Bakoyannis launched a new free walk-in medical clinic for Greek and immigrant residents, with or without health insurance. The Kalfopouloio Municipal Health Clinic in central Athens (78 Solonos St) provides basic health services. "We aim for the new Kalfopoulio Municipal Health Clinic to operate as a model urban primary health care centre in terms of aesthetics, functionality and service provision," said Bakoyannis on September 18. The clinic was opened with a generous one million euro contribution from the health ministry. "At this clinic, citizens have access to pathologists, paediatricians, gynaecologists, cardiologists, dermatologists, orthopaedists, dentists, surgeons, eye doctors, microbiologists and nursing care," said Bakoyannis. The clinic is open weekdays 8am-6pm. No appointment necessary. Ring 210-362-6478 to find out about doctors' schedules.

This IS good news! I hope it's well-advertised so that the people who need it will be able to use its services. Even the hours are excellent...8am-6pm??? I can't even find a 50€-per-visit doctor who has hours like that!

I know. It all sounds too good to be true. I wonder what it's like in reality.

My mother used such a service when she was in Greece last August (she had burned her arm with steam). Needless to say she was very grateful to have such a service.
