Executive Agency "Medical Audit"
Dimitar (Dima) Georgiev
This week we were informed about the sad news that our dear “Executive Agency "Medical Audit" colleague and Bulgarian contact person for EPSO - Dimitar Georgiev unexpectedly passed away.
This message left us speechless as we were more or less regularly in contact with him about our common interest in improvement of health supervision and also about his ideas to support the EPSO working groups and EPSO plans in Bulgaria.
When we first met Dimitar at our EPSO conference in Stockholm he was one of these ‘silent backbenchers’ who do not say much but sharply listen to what is being discussed and carefully look around at what is happening.
However, it did not take long for him to move in the direction of a more active and supportive role in EPSO and in the relationship between EPSO and EAMA. He proposed to organise an interactive training session and Risk working group of EPSO in Sophia and was – less than a year ago now- a remarkably positive and active host for the group and inspiring debater in the working group sessions.
When we last met him at our conference in Saaremaa, Estonia, this Spring, we were not aware that this was to be the last time to meet him. At that conference we were invited to a visit to the Bishops castle. A happy picture of him was taken accompanied by a bear in a central hall of the building (see below).
We wish his wife, children and family all the best with their indescribable loss and will remember him as one of our important partners in EPSO.
