School nurses meet the pupils, as a rule, every year and carry out an individual health check-up and a health care plan.
A more comprehensive health check-up including a check-up by a school doctor is conducted on 1st, 5th and 8th grades.
The parents are invited to be present at their child’s health check-ups. There may be differences in health check-up schedules between different schools.
The school nurse’s consultation room is usually located at the same school to which the child attends.
Pupils may go to see a school nurse without appointment during the school-specific consultation hours. The parents may contact the school nurse in matters relating to their child’s health and wellbeing. The hours for booking appointments and for telephone advice vary.
School-specific information can be found at the WWW pages of the school health care services:
The pupil goes to see a school doctor through the school nurse. In case of acute illness the child is cared for by the personal doctor located at the health centre of the child’s housing district.
