Remote Appointments at Docrates Cancer Center

The hospital is open normally – we also offer remote appointments to all our patients.

Despite the corona virus epidemic, our hospital is open normally. An oncologist’s appointment will be organized for you without delay, also remotely. Further diagnostics as well as treatments will be organized at our hospital in Helsinki.

During the epidemic, we recommend remote appointments to all our patients. We suggest that also existing appointments will be carried out remotely. This can be done by contacting our staff, either your own care team or our Booking, +358 10 773 2010. The remote appointments will be carried out via telephone or Kaiku Health video appointment.

You can still start as well as continue your treatments at Docrates during the limitations to travel within Finland/Uusimaa. We will provide you with a written document detailing the necessity to travel for cancer treatments. If you are travelling to Uusimaa from outside the region, please be in touch with your counseling nurse or our Booking at +358 10 773 2010.  

How do I book a remote appointment?

Why should I choose a remote appointment?

Our goal is to minimize the need to travel as well as make contact with other people. This is to ensure the safety of our patients as well as our staff members.

A remote appointment, when appropriate, is the safest option possible.

How does a remote appointment work?

We will arrange for a telephone or a video appointment for you.

Telephone appointment

If you have booked a telephone appointment, our specialist will call you at a given time.

Video appointment

If you have booked a video appointment, you will need an Internet connection. The appointment will be held via Kaiku Health. You can use Kaiku with your computer, tablet or smart phone.

If you are not a Kaiku user yet, you will receive an invitation to your email after the booking. You will need to register before the appointment. It is a good idea to do this as soon as you get the email.

The video appointment will take place in the Kaiku Health service. Please sign in well in advance (e.g. 10 minutes) prior to the appointment.
