Pielavesi

Patients need an appointment to see the doctor, nurse and community health nurse. During this visit, the nurse assesses the need for treatment. The health center uses a call back system: leave a message and your contact details on the answering machine, and the nurse will call you back.

The health centre provides emergency care during office hours. Keitele and Pielavesi Health Centers operate doctor's emergency services for patients needing urgent care Mon–Fri 4 p.m.–8 p.m. and weekends 8 a.m.–6 p.m.:

Emergency services are at Kuopio University Hospital Mon–Fri 8 p.m.–8 a.m., Weekends 6 p.m.–8 a.m.

Inpatient care services for patients needing short-term care are provided for the entire Nilakka area (Pielavesi, Keitele, Tervo, Vesanto).  The ward has unlimited visiting hours.

Laboratory services and X-ray

Patients need a referral from a physician or nurse for the laboratory examinations. If you have a Finnish Sickness Insurance (Kela/SII) card, this will speed up the process.

Patients need an appointment for radiographic examinations. For an ultrasound examination, an appointment can be booked directly with the X-ray unit. The X-ray services at Pielavesi also perform ultrasound examinations and orthopantomographies. Radiographies and examinations performed based on a referral from a private practitioner are subject to a charge. 

Oral health care

Dentist and dental hygienist services are available on weekdays by appointment. Customers can book an appointment at any of the oral health care practices in the Nilakka service unit (Keitele, Pielavesi, Tervo, Vesanto) via the centralised appointment booking service. During weekends, emergency services are offered at Kuopio.
