Polish Doctors say Government’s Healthcare Commitment a ‘Sham’

Kamila Jakubiak recalls the phone ringing at 4 a.m. and being summoned to Warsaw to perform emergency surgery.

It was a 100-kilometre drive from Radom in east-central Poland, where Jakubiak splits her residency as a junior doctor, or resident.

"At four in the morning I had to leave my child with someone," she said.
