If your health station is closed

Call the Medical Helpline at tel. 116 117 before you go to the emergency clinic. The service is open 24/7.

Problems with the phone service continue

There are technical issues in the phone services for health stations, Medical helpline and Coronavirus Helpline. The calls can break for some customers and the call-back service might not work for all customers.

The phone service for the Medical Helpline (116 117) is working (26.11 at 13.30), but some errors might still occur.

You can also be in contact electronically through Omaolo or visit the emergency service or health station. In case of emergency, please call 112.

We will inform as soon as the issue is fixed. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
