Dear Sir/madam


I am attaching correspondence related to the 64036/14 and 33900/15 ECHR case “Ioannis Tosounidis vs the UK”. This correspondence was received by the Medical Council of Peiraius and it was also communicated by me to the Panhellenic Medical Association (the highest in rank Council of Greek doctors). As of 7-6-2017 the Greek state has introduced “good standing” certificate for the Greek doctors wish to keep their licence to practice. This also includes “good standing” from states in which they worked abroad. That means that if a foreign state does not wish to give a Greek doctor a certificate of “good standing” for his staying (no matter how long) abroad then he loses his licence to practice in Greece. This could be relevant for the 10,000 doctors who currently work in the NHS and the others (up to 200,000) who are subscribed with the GMC and are in need of a  “good standing” to keep having a licence to practice as a doctor in Greece.

Kind regards

Ioannis Tosounidis
