Conducting urgent business during the coronavirus epidemic in other matters besides those related to coronavirus

Give us feedback on our renewed phone service

We have opened a new feedback channel, asiakaspalaute.puhelinpalvelut@vantaa.fi, through which Vantaa residents can send feedback on as well as ideas for developing health centers’ renewed phone service.

Through the feedback channel, you can give feedback on, for example, the functioning of the phone menus or call-back request. This provides us with real-time feedback on, among other things, how the menus function. The feedback you give us makes it possible for us to make changes in our operations.

We will not personally respond to the feedback given, and the feedback channel is not suitable for giving feedback on care-related issues.

Conducting other business at the health centers

You cannot make appointments through Maisa for nurses or public health nurses, family planning nurses, or to the children’s emergency physician. (You can make an appointment with a psychiatric nurse and pharmacist.)
