Most health centres open for the whole summer
The Hatanpää, Hervanta, Kaukajärvi, Linnainmaa, Orivesi, Tammelakeskus and Tipotie health centres as well as the outsourced health centres Mehiläinen Oma Lääkärisi Hervanta, City Centre and Tesoma are open for the whole summer.
The Kaukajärvi and Lielahti health centres will be closed 15–28 July, and the Kämmenniemi health centre will be closed from 1 July to 4 August.
During the summer holidays (1 July to 4 August), health centres will generally only treat patients that need urgent care. We recommend taking care of your prescription renewals, travel vaccinations and medical certificates before the end of June. The easiest way to renew a prescription is through External link .
During the summer holidays, patients will be able to visit the health centre that has the first available appointment time. In July, most of the appointments will be with nurses. Nurses assess the need for treatment and treat minor injuries and illnesses. They can also issue certificates for short sick leaves and give treatment instructions. Appointments with a doctor are available based on the need for treatment.
You can book an appointment by calling the health care counselling service on 03 10023. The service is available every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. The customers of the Linnainmaa and Tipotie health centres as well as the customers of Mehiläinen Oma Lääkärisi Hervanta, City Centre and Tesoma should book their appointments by directly contacting their own health centre during the summer holiday period as well. The customers of the Orivesi health centre can book appointments by calling the health centre, tel. 03 5657 5770, (available on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m).
