Requesting Patient Data

Students have the right to receive copies of their medical records and to inspect the personal data collected about them. The easiest way to view one´s own patient records is via the Social Insurance Institution´s (Kela) My Kanta service. The My Kanta service contains general and mental health data from 30 June 2016 on. We will start entering oral health data in the Kanta service in summer 2018. If data older than this is wanted, requests for a copy should be made using an online form or in person or using the Patient Register review request form in the FSHS unit where the university is located. The student must provide identification in order to obtain the data, which is why data given following a written request must be collected personally from the unit.

Your data will be available for you to pick up at the unit, or we can send it by mail, in about one week.

Please include the following details in your written request:

  • name
  • personal identity code
  • address and phone number
  • the sector from which you would like to order documents (general health, oral health, mental health)
  • which information you want and for which period of time

Remember to sign and date your request.
