Seeking treatment and waiting times

​A patient’s treatment starts in their own health center, either with a booked appointment or with a visit to the emergency clinic. The patient can also seek treatment in occupational health care or book an appointment at a private clinic.
If necessary, the health center physician, occupational health physician, or private clinic physician will write a referral to hospital treatment or examinations in a HUS hospital.
