That is surprising, I didn't know the care in England was worse. My aunt in PL had a head tumor and waited 3-4 months for an MRI. Caring people with lack of funds & equipment.
I have no idea what experience you have with either the English or Polish health service, but, I can assure you that the hospital in Krakow (Jan Pawal 11) where I received treatment has state of the art facilities and was the "cleanest" hospital that I have ever been in. This includes "private" hospitals in the UK.
