During the coronavirus epidemic, only limited outpatient rehabilitation services are available.

Espoonlahti and Leppävaara physiotherapy are closed until further notice. Tapiola and Kanta-Espoo operate normally. For more information, call 09-81636000.

If you or someone close to you has what seem to be symptoms of a common cold or a respiratory tract infection, please cancel your appointment. The majority of follow-up appointments have been cancelled or will be held remotely instead. However, if your appointment is essential, we will see you as usual. If you feel like the situation concerning your rehabilitation is unclear, please call our appointment booking number. If the exceptional coronavirus situation will affect your appointment, we will contact you. All group activities have been cancelled until 31 May.

Information about further rehabilitation as an outsourced service

The speech therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy appointments that the City of Espoo outsources can also take place remotely. A health care professional must carefully assess whether the service can be delivered remotely and whether the client/patient can be treated using remote connections. Remote rehabilitation must be carried out in accordance with Valvira’s instructions. Traditional individual therapy can also be arranged face-to-face if this is necessary and if the necessary protective equipment is used. Espoo’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Services unit has decided to serve clients with urgent needs in a way that their situation requires. In other words, face-to-face appointments are available, if necessary. The same applies to outsourced services.
