When should I visit the on-call service?
The on-call general practitioner service is a good option if you need urgent care in case of a sudden illness, poisoning or a minor accident. Typical situations include sudden or worsened infections, pain in the head, the stomach or the back, wounds, burns and frostbite. Our on-call service treats patients of all ages. In case of an emergency, you should always call the emergency services at 112.
Our on-call general practitioner service provides you with treatment and examinations immediately. If necessary, the examinations can include laboratory tests and x-rays. If the situation requires further treatment, such as surgery, we will refer the patient to further treatment. Further treatment can, for example, be provided in a public hospital or by Mehiläinen’s accident team, heart clinic or hospital. At the same time, further treatment and check-ups are agreed on.
Who are the doctors who run the on-call service?
The on-call general practitioner service is run by an on-call team, which includes doctors with knowledge of emergency medicine, experienced general practitioners and nurses.
