Polish healthcare system chronically ill

Medical treatment in Poland's state-run clinics and hospitals is worsening by the day and the national health service NFZ is increasingly inefficient, according to a report put out by the country's medical supervisory authority. If that's why patients are having to pay for necessary additional services then the public heathcare system is really on its last legs, the conservative daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna fumes: "Theoretically we all receive fair and equal treatment. But in practice that only applies to a select few. The others wait in lines. And the principle of a free healthcare system is pure fiction anyway. ... In fact, the only thing the principle of equality and fairness guarantees is that we all pay our health insurance each month. The problem is that the NFZ is poorly managed and can't afford anything. That's why it has to force patients to make additional payments."
