What procedure should I follow while being admitted to the Central Clinic of Athens?
If you will be undergoing a surgical procedure, be sure to ask for the special information pamphlet available from the Clinic and read it through carefully.
What should I do with medication I am currently taking?
Once you arrive in your ward, be sure to inform your doctor or nurse about medication you are currently taking when providing them with your medical history. The medication must be handed to the nursing staff for safe keeping. You should not store any medication in your bedside table nor should you take any medication except that which is given to you by the doctors as your condition may be distorted and improvement delayed.
