At Kivikko Health Station, a new operational model is being tested with the objective of enhancing timely access to non-urgent care at Helsinki's health stations. This initiative is in line with the requirement that, starting from September, clients should receive non-urgent care within a two-week time frame.

During the trial period, Kivikko Health Station will not be accepting new clients, except for individuals who have relocated to the area. If you wish, you can choose to visit any other Helsinki health station.

The treatment time guarantee is tightening: Stricter time limits for accessing non-urgent care starting 1 September 2023
Beginning in September, you should be able to contact a health station during regular operating hours and receive a response on the same day. You should also receive an individual assessment of the need and urgency for your treatment. Non-urgent care should be available within 14 days. Unfortunately, there are currently delays in some services, and we have not yet met the treatment time guarantee targets in all our services. Nevertheless, we are actively working towards achieving these targets.
