Polish doctors are now issuing only a tiny percentage of sick-leave notes in traditional paper form, officials have said.

Under rules that came into force in December, medical staff have to issue sick-leave certificates electronically.

From December to the end of July, physicians issued almost 17 million such e-documents, while just over 32,000 were handed out in paper form, state news agency PAP reported on Tuesday.

The new rules allow the old-style notes to be handed out in the event of a power cut, if a doctor’s internet connection goes down, or if a physician has no mobile device during a home visit.

The change to the new system had sparked opposition from some in the medical profession in Poland amid concerns that older doctors would have trouble in coping with modern technology.
