Patient rights

Everyone living in Finland has the right to receive the treatment required by their state of health within the available resources. The patient also has other statutory rights, such as the right to good care and treatment, and access to information about health and care.

The patient ombudsmen of the hospital district of Southwest Finland have compiled information on this page about patients' rights and the authorities that monitor them. You will also find forms on the page that you may need to pursue your own interests.
