The Patients' Views

Questions

  1. Could you say a few words to introduce yourself?
  2. What's your definition of "feeling healthy"?
  3. Do you consider yourself a healthy person?
  4. What do you do when you feel unwell?
  5. What's your most memorable experience of contacts with the NHS/Polish Health system?
  6. Having spent some time in Britain/Poland can you say that there are things relating to health issues or health service which strike you as very different from those in your native country? If so, what are they?
