Primary healthcare is responsible for all healthcare and medical treatment that does not require the hospitals’ special resources. Primary healthcare is mainly provided through the healthcare centres. The healthcare centres treat the most common illnesses and often have a children’s clinic, a prenatal clinic and rehabilitation resources, for example physical therapy. They can also offer conversational support and advice through their welfare counsellors or help to stop smoking, lose weight or with other problems that affect health.
