Hundreds of hospital workers congregated outside the parliament building and the Health Ministry building in central Athens on Thursday, as well as other parts of the austerity-stricken country.
The nationwide walkout left tens of thousands of patients without basic medical care. The 27 hospitals in the capital were also forced to run on emergency staff as a result.
Unions described the proposed reforms as destructive to the healthcare sector. The reform plan includes layoffs and the closure of hospitals and clinics across Greece.
