Finance Minister Questions New HIO Hires, Stresses Productivity Focus

The Finance Minister of Cyprus, Makis Keravnos, has raised concerns about the need for new hires at the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) and instead emphasizes the importance of productivity and structural changes in addressing healthcare system efficiency. The debate over staffing and budgetary approval for additional positions at the HIO reflects the ongoing challenge of balancing adequate staffing with fiscal prudence, with implications for patient waiting times and overall healthcare service delivery in Cyprus.
