List of health centres

All Espoo residents are assigned to a health centre based on their home address. If you want, you can switch to another health centre: Instructions for switching health centres.

If you do not know your health centre, you can call the appointment booking number of any health centre and ask about it.


The Self care site provides information on how you can personally take care of your well-being and promote your health. Each health centre also has a self-care point where you can measure, among other things, your blood pressure, weight and waistline.

Each health centre has its own telephone number. The contact information can be found on each health centre’s own website. When you call the appointment booking and information number, your number is automatically recorded by the system. We will usually call you back within an hour. There is also an SMS service for the hearing-impaired. Telephone service instructions
