Visit the hospital duty ward in a safe and healthy way by first calling 116 117

Kainuu Central Hospital duty department instructs patients to contact them before arrival. The nurse on duty will give further instructions or an estimate of the appointment time if the situation requires a visit to the duty ward. Calling 116 117 first will reduce the waiting time in the duty ward department. Please note, however, that the situation in the department may change due to more urgent  patients.

In life-threatening and other emergencies, always call 112.

Please only bring a necessary escort, such as a relative of a child or elderly person, to the hospital. Reducing the number of people on the hospital premises at the same time reduces the risk of spreading not only coronavirus but also other diseases. Access to the duty ward from door F2 (duty ward clinic) on the west side of the hospital.

The instructions for accessing the hospital will remain in force permanently, even after the coronavirus epidemic has subsided.
