Healthcare centre or clinic (Vårdcentral or hälsocentral)

Contact a vårdcentral or hälsocentral if you or someone else gets ill or injured. The staff there can help you with most problems and that is usually the place to go to first.

It is best to phone them first. If you are given a time for an appointment, the clinic staff can book an interpreter if needed. The visit will cost maximum SEK 50 if you are an asylum-seeker or a person without documents. Visits are usually free for children and young people under 18.

Interpreter

Interpreter

You can get help from an interpreter if you do not speak Swedish. The healthcare staff will help you to book an interpreter. It is free of charge. If you need an interpreter, tell the healthcare staff at the same time as you make your appointment. You can use this language map to show them which language you need.

The interpreter will either be in the room with you or interpret over the telephone.

Professional secrecy

Professional secrecy

Healthcare staff and interpreters have a professional secrecy obligation. That means they are not allowed to talk to other people about things you say unless you give them permission to do so.

The information you give healthcare staff or interpreters will not affect your chances of staying in Sweden.
