Primary health care (POZ)

Primary health care (Podstawowa Opieka Zdrowotna, shortened to POZ) is universally available and the most important part of the health care system. Services at POZ are provided to people who have selected a doctor, nurse and/or POZ midwife.

They are usually carried out on an outpatient basis (in an office or clinic), but in medically justified cases, also at the patient’s home or at social welfare centers.

Services are provided on weekdays, from Monday to Friday, between 8.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m., excluding public holidays. POZ branches may admit patients for shorter period, provided that patients have access to the main clinic during this time.
