Health and Care Choices
Health and Care Choices Skåne gives you the opportunity to choose a care provider that suits your needs. It may, for instance, be a clinic that is close to your home, one that has good opening hours, or one that has been recommended to you by someone you know.
You can choose between care units that are run privately or by Region Skåne. You can never be denied your choice of care provider.
On the website, 1177.se, you can compare care centres to each other.
You can choose your:
- Care Centre
- Child Welfare Centre
- Midwife Clinic
- Cataract Surgery Clinic
- Psychotherapy Clinic (CBT, IPT and PDT)
- Audionome Clinic
- Dental Care Clinic (and Specialist Clinic) for children and adolescents aged 0–23 years
- Dermatology Clinic
- Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addictions
- Ophthalmic Clinic
Forms and more information about how to make your choice are available on 1177.se. Your choice of care centre and child welfare centre can also be made through My Care Contacts (Mina vårdkontakter).
