The head of government announced that the changes introduced are to ensure that
hospital emergency departments are not associated with long queues, crowded corridors, but with more efficient service and procedures and a more efficient approach to patients. These changes are to be supported inter alia by
replacing equipment with more modern one in about 100 hospitals in all 16 voivodeships all over the country highlighted the Prime Minister.
There will be also changes introduced in relation to the profession of a nurse which, as the prime minister pointed out,
is very important, and at the same time in deficit, because many persons retire and leave the market. He added that the government programme is
built in cooperation with schools and its aim is to encourage the young to exercise this profession.
