Espoo reduces health and social services to safeguard Espoo Hospital’s operations

Published: 10.1.2022 10.17

Recently, the number of coronavirus patients at Espoo Hospital has increased significantly. At the same time, staff absences have increased. The situation is worse than it has ever been during the pandemic.

To safeguard the hospital’s operations and patient care, Espoo will transfer staff to Espoo Hospital from other units, such as health centres and contact tracing.

Due to these transfers, we have to cancel some clients’ health centre appointments. To safeguard our urgent care services, we ask you to consider if you could wait and contact your health centre later.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of appointments. We ask for your understanding in this exceptional situation.
