Questions about doctors and medications in Poland

Just wondering if it will be difficult getting into a doctor and receiving medication - I'll be in a smaller town - Elblag. I will have insurance through my job. I know this might sound like a goofy question to some of you. This is new for me so, I was just wondering if there are any difficulties with these of there is anything I should know.

Thanks for any help!

I know that Poland and the UK have a reciprocal health treaty, basically you need an E111 form (er..or something like that )which basically enables you to receieve free health treatment. However if you have the cash going private is probably a better idea.

If you are not a uk citizen don't panic many other countries have imilar things arranged, check with your embassy.
