Patient representative activities


According to the ethical guidelines and values of the Central Finland Health Care District, our aim is to provide the highest standards of care and service in co-operation with the patients and their close persons within the scope of available resources. 

However, if you experience problems related to your medical care or treatment, we hope that you discuss the matter with your treating doctor or nurse. If necessary, you can also turn to the chief physician or the chief nurse.

The activities of the patient representative include:

To encourage the patient to talk with the person concerned immediately as a problem occurs.

To provide consultation, if needed, for resolving conflicts and, for example, for making a complaint in case no other solution is found.

To promote and enforce patient rights in the medical society.

To provide information on matters concerning the patient’s status and rights.

In matters related to patient damage you can turn to your ward's/polyclinic's social workers. You can consult them also after your treatment has ended.
