Health care services

Primary health care is provided by municipal health centres. Patients have the right to choose a health centre outside their own municipality. Children under school age are attended to by child welfare clinics, and schoolchildren by school health care. EU citizens can also receive treatment in another EU member state, EEA member state, or Switzerland. EU citizens can freely find their way into treatment in another EU member state.

Emergency care is provided immediately. Even in non-urgent cases, the need for care is assessed rapidly and treatment is provided within a specified time. Health centre treatment is arranged within three months and specialised medical care within six months.
