On the 20th of February 2014, British Polish Chamber of Commerce Kraków/ BPCC Kraków organized at the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London a Tourist Market Forum 2014.
The event aimed at drawing particular attention to medical tourism, an area in which one can observe huge potential and chance of development for Polish businessmen who offer services relating to it.
The forum enjoyed large attendance – the market reacted to the event in such a way that its concequence can only be another edition, which is planned for Autumn 2014. The next step taken by BPCC is inviting the British for Study Tours around Poland, in order to present them some of the most active entities remaining in partnership with the British Polish Chamber of Commerce. The participants of the Forum will surely take further steps to develop business contacts formed during the meeting.
The MEP stressed in his letter to BPCC Kraków, the Embassy of Poland in London and the participants of the Forum that:
“Poland has a tremendous opportunity and potential to become a global player in a tourism industry, especially in medical and sightseeing tourism which are the main focus on this conference”. We wish Polish businessmen to make use of this remarkable potential. What is more, Paweł Kowal stressed that he resolves to encourage all activities and initiatives taken up within the European Union’s tourism section policy.
Director of BPCC in Kraków Agnieszka Libura, Director of BPCC London Michael Clay and the first counsellor of the Departament of Industrial Policy and Promotion (WPHI) at the Embassy of Poland in London Leszek Banaszak, welcomed the participants in the beautiful interiors of the Embassy. The glamorous interiors pointed at the rank of the event, which was organized at the plea of the BPCC members and was settled as the meeting place in response.
During the lectures help by invited experts, the figures pointing at enormous potential of tourism area and medical tourism were confirmed. The speakers clearly stressed that Poland needs to use the opportunity created by the directive of the European Parliament and the Council 2011/24/UE from 9th of March 2011 becoming effective, concerning the application of patients’ rights in cross-border health care. The dinner created opportunity to take up talks on business cooperation between Polish and British participants. Both parties ware interested in maintaining a lasting relation, allowing for synergisting development of activities.
One of the elements of the programme was handing the “POLAND thanks you!” awards, which aim at honouring the activity of the British entities on behalf of Poland and its development in the tourism area. The awards were granted to: MD Angela Chouaib (Secret Surgery), who held remarkably interesting lectures on medical tourism, based on their own rich experience in that area.
We know that the Hungarians have made excellent use of the free flow of patients from other countries of the European Union. If they did this, we should follow their way and this fine example. Polish facilities offer services on remarkably high level, what was reflected in the speeches of the British lecturers.
In addition, our country can in fact offer anything a potential tourist could possibly want. The flow of the British tourists can lay foundation for business – its range is virtually unlimited. British Polish Chamber of Commerce is ready to help Polish businessmen to become beneficiaries of the activating endevours and those strenghtening the relations with the partners from the British Isles.
We believe that such chance should on no account remain unused, what was confirmed by every sentence of the experts speaking during the Forum. Awards/Sculptures were made by The Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Its really exciting news at Secret Surgery and we really couldn’t keep our latest news to ourselves; so here is a sneak preview.
Please take a look at our new purpose built 60 bedroom private KWS hospital in Wroclaw. We will be officially launching this medical facility in December with a view to sending patients here in the New Year.
Our MD & Founder Angela Chouaib personally was an Inpatient in this facility in August 2013 where she had a thigh lift; as she stands by only recommending services she has personally experienced herself first hand.
“Due to the continued success of Secret Surgery Ltd and positive feedback from our patients under the care of Dr Wacławowicz, KWS hospital will be used in addition to EMC Instytut Medyczny (which is reaching full capacity) and will be run by the wonderfully talented Dr. Wojciech Wacławowicz, Head of the Plastic Surgery. “
I am feeling fantastic stiches are all out and I have had complete rest since Monday. I feel like a new woman. I looked in the mirror last night and for the first time I smiled.
I thank you Patricia Doc W Aga Jack what a team you are thank you for giving me Me back eternally grateful XXXXX
“The service was good in the UK, but not as good as in Poland, the little things like pain management, anti sickness, aftercare, and attention and care from the surgeon make a huge difference. One little example…. after my last op in the UK, I saw the surgeon very briefly the morning after my op, then it was 2 months before I met with him again. In Poland I seen him daily!”

Yep, more magazine news, but this time it’s not Real People – but keep your eyes out next week for more details on that, too! Today, we’re letting you know that Secret Surgery, and our beautiful founder, Angela Chouaib, have been featured in glamorous women’s mag, Essentials!
You’ll find us in the October edition of the magazine, so get ready to get buying! The feature is all about the women who opt for cosmetic surgery, and how popular procedures are becoming with ordinary women. No longer is cosmetic surgery something reserved only for the richest and most powerful of Hollywood; now, for just a few thousand pounds, you can look like the person you’ve always felt like on the inside.
Angela Chouaib, Secret Surgery’s founder and MD, has been featured in the article as one of the glamorous girls who has undergone surgery. Angela had bariatric surgery years ago, and has recently opted for a thigh lift. She’s not only Secret Surgery’s founder, but she’s one of our patients, too!
For more gossip and glam, make sure you buy the October edition of Essentials… it’s… essential!
It’s long been known that men and women have turned to cosmetic surgery when the wrinkles started to appear in order to look a little more like they did in their hey days. But… whoever heard of turning to cosmetic surgery just to look your age?
Apparently, this is what more and more men and women in the US are doing every year. A US surgeon told ABC News that many of his patients are overworked men and women in good jobs who don’t want the surgery to eradicate their wrinkles, but ‘just to soften them’.
Perhaps it’s true that the daily stresses of modern life are making us wrinklier and more haggard as the years pass by. Is this really the case though?
I wonder whether, in the US, this is more to do with the fact that super-hot celebrities – whether they’re in their 20s or their 50s – are so commonly seen that people are beginning to think that looking normal at 45 is really looking old. ‘Young’ is the new normal.
My advice? Don’t get cosmetic surgery because you think you look older than you are. Get it because you don’t like the way you look! Stop comparing yourself to other people… or you will always find something to be unhappy with.
