Public sector doctors and nurses went on strike in Greece on Wednesday, amid the country’s financial crisis.

They say they are fed up with under-staffing and under-funding – and are demanding back pay.

Hospitals were functioning with emergency staff while a demonstration was held outside the health ministry.

The state hospital workers’ union said Greece’s national health service is “out of control due to under-funding and under-staffing.”

Pensioners joined health workers as they protested in Athens, fearing further austerity measures amid the country’s financial crisis.
