Non-urgent medical care
Every resident of Kuopio has a medical care team determined automatically on the basis of the resident’s home address. When you call the phone number of your team, you will be given instructions for treatment or an appointment with a nurse or a doctor.
Team nurses also provide medical care independently. Many regular medical follow-up visits can be treated by the nurses. In addition, nurses treat wounds and remove stiches, write sick leave and medical care leave certificates and prepare renewals of prescriptions.
Write your address to the search box. Enter only the street address and number, not the stairs number or postal code and the post office, because if you do, the search will not be successful. The team nurses' telephone hours are on weekdays from 8 -10 am. For urgent medical care, 10 am - 15 pm, contact the City of Kuopio switchboard 017 182 111.
The calls and the waiting time on the phone are charged at the operator’s standard rate specified in your subscriber connector agreement.
