The North Estonia Medical Centre contributes to health check-ups of Ukrainian war refugees


On 10 March, The North Estonia Medical Centre opened a general health check-up point for Ukrainian war refugees at its Hiiu unit (Hiiu 44, Tallinn). The health check-up point is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

For Ukrainian war refugees who have arrived in the country, the initial medical check-ups are carried out by emergency medical service medics. From the reception centres, the refugees will be referred to the North Estonia Medical Centre or other HVA hospitals for a secondary, i.e. general health check-up. War refugees who do not stay at a reception centre but instead stay with relatives or acquaintances living in Estonia, for example, can also have a general medical check-up.

The general health check-up includes a medical examination, tests for infectious diseases, a chest X-ray, and, if necessary, vaccinations and prescriptions for necessary medicines. If necessary, a referral is made to a specialist. General medical check-ups are recommended for war refugees and are a one-off service. To go for a health check-up at the North Estonia Medical Centre, you must register in advance by calling 617 1049 or 617 1300. General medical check-ups are free of charge for war refugees, the hospital costs are covered by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund.
