The unique boat doctor service of the archipelago physicians works during the school summer holidays on a remarkably large area of the archipelago. The fast Sailfish boat used by our physicians has versatile polyclinic operational equipment, a quick diagnostic laboratory as well as a very broad medicine and instrument storage. The physicians in charge of the treatment are licensed to practice in Finland and they all have long experience in clinical treatment.
The principle of the boat doctor service is that the patient is examined and treated on site in the archipelago allowing the long waited summer holiday to continue without interruption despite the accident or sudden illness.
The treatment conducted on the boat and the care received by the patient are covered by both the KELA (The Social Insurance Institution of Finland) and the insurance companies. It is possible to arrange a home visit by the boat doctor and call for a GP telephone consultation throughout the summer at the boat doctor number 0600-100 33 (1,95e / min + local network service charge). The service is available everyday from 23rd June to 8th August between 10am and 8pm.
