Student Health Care is closed in the evenings and on weekends, so if you need medical attention during such times, contact either a private clinic (remember the insurance) or municipal health services. If you need urgent medical attention, go to the Emergency Department Acuta, located at Tampere University Hospital. The emergency service is not free of charge, so make sure you have proper health insurance.
Health insurance also covers medical consultation in private clinics. In case of minor injuries, most private clinics are able to provide you with the assistance you require. There are many private clinics in Tampere, such as Koskiklinikka, Pirte, Terveystalo and Pihlajalinna. For up-to-date information on public health care, please go to the webpage that introduces you to social and health services provided by the City of Tampere.
