Choosing a health centre

Everyone has access to a health centre in their municipality of residence. As a public healthcare client, you can also choose which health centre you wish to use. You can choose the place of treatment for non-emergency care from among the health centres in your municipality of residence and also throughout Finland. You can be a client of only one health centre at a time. Your health centre will provide all primary healthcare services such as doctor's and nurse's appointments, maternity and child health clinic services, dental care and rehabilitation services.
