Health care costs are on the rise. Patients will have to spend more on medical care.

An aging society and increased demand for medical services, lack of doctors and nurses, which forces an increase in salaries, and the need to invest in modern technologies and diagnostic equipment - these are the main reasons for the rising costs of health care. This applies to both public health care and the increasingly popular private sector in Poland. Private entities are increasingly more often deciding to valorise the prices of medical services in order to maintain high quality of care.

Before you venture out on a ski slope, check your fitness

With the winter season in full swing, many Poles have been bitten by the skiing bug. As many as 30 per cent of them declare to be able to ski, while 11 per cent say they put on their skis and go skiing at least once a year[1]. However, it should be borne in mind that skills and experience do not fully protect us against accidents, which are not uncommon in the winter season every year. Therefore, before venturing out on a slope, it is worth thinking about how to take care of your safety. Surely, many skiing enthusiasts have already prepared their skiing equipment, but have they also taken care of proper training to get their body ready for the upcoming effort?
