School Health Care serves in all matters related to the physical and mental health of a comprehensive school student.
The school nurse and doctor can be contacted through School Health Care. In all matters related to the well-being of a student the school nurse should be contacted first.
An appointment to the school doctor must always be arranged through the school nurse.
In urgent cases of illness and outside school hours the primary place for care is the student’s own local health station.
