Switching health centres

You can select your health centre anywhere in continental Finland.

You can start using the new health centre’s services after delivering the notification to both your current health centre and the new health centre of your choice. If you send the notifications by post, you can start using the new health centre’s services two weeks after sending them.

When you switch health centres, you will have to wait at least a year before you can switch again.

Members of a family can be clients of different health centres. This means that children are not automatically transferred with their parents. You will need to make a separate notification for each family member to be transferred. An underage child’s notification must be signed by both parents/guardians.
