The nurses unions’ strike was cancelled; instructions for patientsKeywords:
Today at 4 p.m., Tehy and SuPer cancelled the second phase of the strike that was due to start tomorrow. Any cancelled appointments will remain cancelled unless the patient is contacted by phone. Laboratories and X-ray units may be overburdened.
Since the strike was cancelled in the very end of the day, any appointments cancelled because of the strike will generally remain cancelled, unless the treating unit contacts their patients and informs them otherwise.
On Wednesday April 20, HUS units will concentrate on treating hospitalized patients and on calling patients, in order of medical urgency, to attend appointments during the rest of the week. Units will contact their patients and inform them of their new appointments. Patients can check their booked appointments online in the patient portal Maisa.
Laboratories and X-ray units will be open
We aim to open all laboratory sampling sites, X-ray units and other medical imaging sites on April 20, but delays are possible and the units may be overburdened.
