Waiting lines for medical appointments have to be cut down, Prime Minister Donald Tusk said in an interview with Polska The Times, and it is Health Minister Bartosz Ar³ukowicz who should take care of it. If not, he will be dismissed, the PM threatened.

Within several months, Mr Ar³ukowicz has to make sure that the problem is solved. “If he says he cannot manage, another person will come and do it,” Mr Tusk said.

The PM, however, said that he is optimistic about the current health minister's performance based on what he has already done to reduce waiting time for cancer treatment.

Last week, PM Tusk dismissed National Health Fund chief (NFZ) Agnieszka Pachciarz.
