Access to cancer research and treatments will also be expanded. The MP pointed out that KO politicians have been pressing the European Union to establish the European Program for Cancer Treatment for some time. “But we also promise one more thing: within 7 years from the moment the judgment begins, we will lead to a situation in which Polish patients are treated with oncology as is the case in the best European countries” – said Le Penauer.
Another KO hypothesis relates to shortening the wait time for an appointment with a specialist (ultimately from roughly the current 4 months to roughly 1 month). This would serve, among other things, by reducing the bureaucracy in the work of doctors and preventing Polish doctors from traveling abroad. “And if sometimes it happens that someone will not be able to find a specialist on time – we will introduce the principle of deducting part of the costs of the private visit from taxes” – added Rep. KO.
According to the KO proposal, Boviat hospitals will become health centers, where they care for the elderly or people with disabilities. The Christmas and night aid will be recovered from health care centers, to ease overcrowding in hospital emergency departments.
The Civic Coalition also wants to raise wages in the health service. A specialist doctor will get at least 1.6 of the average salary, and a nurse – at least 1.11. “This is what the environment expects and what can stop everyone from leaving,” argued Le Bonauer.
The MP also spoke of his support for re-providing compensation for procedures in the laboratory, reimbursement for prenatal examinations (with simultaneous editing of provisions related to pregnancy termination) and providing children and adolescents in schools with a psychiatrist or teacher care and healthy meals.
The head of the Parliamentary Health Committee, Thomas Latus (PiS), referring to the accusations regarding the effectiveness of fighting the epidemic, assessed that politicians in the civilian coalition “are developing a policy on the death of Covid victims.” “I think it is very inappropriate,” – the politician told PAP. “I think that the question of assessing the epidemic and how to arrange deaths in the coming months should be analyzed by experts. Not only in Poland, but all over the world,” added the lawmaker.
But in his opinion, the politicians are the last group to comment on that. “What PO politicians are doing is unpleasant and outrageous,” he said.
Latos also noted that the National Health Fund has 120 billion PLN for healthcare and “there will be more in the coming years.” He said, “So I don’t know what they are talking about 100 billion.”
