FIRST AID AND MEDICAL CARE

The only emergency number in Finland is 112.

Insurances and care

EU, EEA and Swiss citizens are entitled to free medical care in Finland, but you should carry proof of this entitlement. This comes in the form of the EHIC, the European Health Insurance Card, which has replaced the E111 form in most EU countries. If you don’t fall into this category, you should take a travel insurance.

In Helsinki, medical facilities and their staff are as a rule excellent and are widely available for emergency services. English, Swedish and also Russian is commonly spoken by Finnish medical personnel. So if you do need to see a doctor, don’t worry, there are plenty of medical centres in Helsinki open around the clock.
