Laboratory examinations are often needed to determine your health status. Typical laboratory examinations include blood and urine sampling, taking gynaecological samples, ECG examinations and spirometric examinations.
Most laboratory testing of students visiting the FSHS will be carried out at service units of SYNLAB Suomi Oy. Check the SYNLAB website for contact details and opening hours.
This is how laboratory services will be provided:
- A healthcare professional at the FSHS will give you a referral for laboratory testing at SYNLAB. Laboratory examinations performed at the FSHS are free of charge.
- You can book a laboratory appointment on SYNLAB’s electronic “Health Folder” system or by phone. Remember to make the booking on Health Folder, so that the invoice will be sent to the FSHS, in accordance with the referral.
- You may cancel or change the appointment no later than 24 hours before the booked appointment.
- The laboratory results will be sent to the person treating you at the FSHS. You can view the results of most tests on SYNLAB’s Health Folder and the Kanta service.
Quick tests and ECGs (electrocardiograms) can still be taken at FSHS service units, while our partner units will provide laboratory testing with their subcontractors.
