Patient rights

The Finnish Patient Insurance Centre will decide whether a patient has sustained a compensable bodily injury in connection with medical treatment and health care on the basis of the Patient Injuries Act. The Finnish Patient Insurance Centre is an insurance institution and solely handles insurance matters.
