As a foreigner living in Bydgoszcz, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Bydgoszcz if they have access to public healthcare in Bydgoszcz. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"As a foreigner living in Bydgoszcz, you will have access to public healthcare if you are a legal resident and have registered for public health insurance. The public healthcare system in Poland is funded by the National Health Fund (NFZ), which provides a range of medical services, including primary care, specialist consultations, hospital treatment, and emergency care. However, it is important to note that public healthcare in Poland may have longer waiting times for certain treatments and services, and the quality of care may vary between facilities. Additionally, not all medical staff may be fluent in English, so it is advisable to learn some basic Polish phrases or have a translator to help with communication. Many foreigners also choose to purchase private health insurance for faster access to specialists and better quality care," remarked another expat in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
