Choosing a place of treatment
As a public healthcare client, you can choose your place of treatment when you require non-emergency care. You can choose any health centre in Finland. You can choose together with your doctor the specialised medical care unit in which you wish to be treated. Information about changing your health centre or hospital, or about the service voucher, is provided primarily by your own local health centre or hospital district.
