Greek state hospital services face disruptions as staff hold work stoppages and protests over government austerity measures and pay delays.

Doctors and staff at public hospitals in the greater Athens area will walk off the job for three hours Wednesday, and are planning a demonstration at the health ministry at noon (1000 GMT).

Hospital doctors are also holding a go-slow protest, claiming the government has not given them overtime pay for four months.

Health spending was affected by new cuts this year to ensure Greece can continue receiving loans from euro partners and the International Monetary Fund.
