Persons with international protection
After you have moved to Hämeenlinna, you will be invited to a health check. (Please note, that this applies only to persons with granted international protection.)
During the health check, a nurse will see if you need other examinations or treatments. If necessary, the nurse will book an appointment for:
- a doctor
- laboratory tests
- a maternity and child health clinic
After living in Hämeenlinna for about half a year, you will be invited to a dental check.
When you receive an invitation, read the letter carefully and follow the instructions.
The letter will tell you the date and time you need to go to the clinic. Please be on time! Plan your other things so that you can get to the health check.
The letter will have the address you need to go to. Read the address carefully as the clinics have different addresses.
If you do not come to the health check, you will have to pay a penalty fee. It will be several dozen euros. You will have to use your own savings to pay the penalty fee.
If you know that you will not be able to come to the health check, please tell about it to an employee at the refugee reception centre in good time. Then you will not have to pay the penalty fee. The employee will book a new appointment for you. For the refugee reception contact details, see here
