we Poles are called being of "beneficiary" mindset when going to UK :)
Yeah...and you got to use our (genuinely) free NHS.
Until she was hospitalised, Inever ever let my daughter be diagnosed by the disgrace that passes for NSZZ staff in Polish children's clinics. It would be hilarious, if it weren't criminal, that the very same doctors who worked in State health centres in the morning would put on a concerned face later on in their own clinics, but at least it was in their interests for your child to actually get well, and be a "repeat customer"
In the UK as in a normal society, children to the age of 18 go free.Zilch to pay.
Poland has always been a very bad joke, because the populace puts up with such nonsense, as with the concept of pay ZUS, but pay again for your child's welfare. And it will never improve, because of the ridiculous working practices in Polish healthcare.
And don't get me started on the right wing attitudes of the doctors, as they line their pockets and sneer.
