School and Student Health Care

School Health Care

School health care is meant for all pupils in basic education. All schools have a school nurse who invites the pupils for their annual medical examinations. Pupils can see the school nurse also without an appointment.

Moreover, guardians can always contact the school nurse in matters related to children's health and wellbeing.

In grades 1, 5, and 8, pupils and their guardians are invited to see the school doctor. In other situations, appointments with the school doctor are made by the school nurse.
