Sławek Szefs reports that the new law has met with staunch opposition and criticism from the medical profession here.
"We are not pressing for any further delay in the introduction of e-sick leave notifications but to allow the existing form of paper slips to remain as an alternative solution… just in case,” Maciej Hamankiewicz, president of the Supreme Medical Council, told Polish Radio.
