Report Says Most Greeks Haven’t Seen a Doctor in a Year



According to data from the year 2017, which was published by Eurostat on Monday, Greek citizens are the least likely to visit a doctor of all the citizens from all 28 nations of the European Union.

Eurostat, which is the European Union’s official statistics authority, claims that 60.5 percent of Greeks did not have a medical checkup during the last twelve months, counting back from the time the report was conducted.

One out of four Greeks said that they had visited a doctor once or twice in the last year, with less than one out of ten (9.2 percent) saying that they had visited a doctor between three and five times.

The average European figures show that over a period of twelve months, 38 percent of people in the EU visited a doctor once, with one out of four EU citizens saying that they did not visit a doctor at all.

The European Union nation notching the most visits to doctors was Denmark, with one out of two Danish citizens saying that they visit their doctor more than six times per year.
