And remember that last time I checked fewer than half the people in Poland actually pay any tax.
2% of the spend (28billion zloty) on healthcare is PRIVATE not public wbj.pl/article-52858-is-polish-healthcare-largely-private.html
The remainder, 5% is public. Which partly explains the confusing figures.
The UK is 8-12% depending on who you believe, so per capita spending is at least 4x poland and its still considered crap by some.
I wouldn't be surprised if the GP's over here make about 10% of that.
Student nurses start at 2000-2500 per month. Senior Nurses are going to earn double or triple that.
Doctors earn several times as much again, so 20k per month seems probable; and its the figure my wife quoted.
I just find it disgusting that a foreigner would be critical of the public health system
Seems to be a commonly held view amongst hospital staff that Poland's system is very underfunded and a bit **** as a result. Poles are quite welcome to criticise the NHS, along with the rest of the British who also like to complain about it.
However my wife was shocked on how good British hospitals were in comparison to Poland.
