1177 - national health care guidance

This service is provided as cooperation between Swedish regions. 1177.se provides information about medical problems as well as contact details for the county's care providers. The telephone service, 1177, provides medical advice and referrals to the right care provider.

Local health care centres

The primary healthcare organisation is responsible for all healthcare and medical treatment that does not require the hospitals' special resources. This is provided through 30 local health care centres - 23 public and 7 private healthcare centres.. If patients require specialist care, the family doctor refers them onwards. The local health care centres are part of Region Värmland's outpatient care service.
