A Spot Inspection by a team from the National Organization of Medicines, the Drug Enforcement Police and a magistrate


 
PRESS RELEASE

A Spot Inspection by a team from the National Organization of Medicines, the Drug Enforcement Police and a magistrate

 
Thursday morning, 24 October, MCCH received an unannounced inspection by a team of officials from the Greek National Organization for Medicines, and the narcotics police in the presence of a magistrate.  The inspection came as a result of a complaint of drugs trafficking.  Our volunteers cooperated fully.  Our pharmacy was inspected, as was the rest of the clinic.  No drugs were found in the class of narcotics, nor were there any other irregularities.  Almost simultaneously, the free clinic of the “Doctors of the World” also received a “visit.”  As with us, there were no irregularities.

We have requested of the police to inform us who made this complaint; we would like to invite them to our clinic so that they can see how we operate.  We are trying to achieve a COMMUNITY clinic.

It strikes us as more than strange that instead of focusing on what impoverishes 3,000,000 uninsured citizens, many of who die helpless because state health care is slowly unraveling, that some decide to “raid” volunteer community clinics during their operating hours.  We have NOTHING to hide.  The clinic can be visited at any time during our operating hours by anyone who wishes to tour and see how we operate.  We have received two surprise inspections in the last ten months, the first by the Medical Association of Athens, and the second last Thursday.

Furthermore, we publicly declare that the Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko and its volunteers are not intimidated nor influenced by such actions.  It confirms that we are on the right track in helping to preserve the dignity of our uninsured and unemployed fellow citizens.

As long as governments implement the same inhumane policies of excluding the uninsured from the Public Health System, we will continue, along with other community organizations, to stand in solidarity and to offer humanity and dignity to each patient.  Additionally, as we consider it our duty and obligation, we will by any means we can denounce such policies, both in Greece and abroad, and fight to reverse them.
