Patient documents provide a record of treatment and are compiled at the treatment site or submitted to the treatment site. These documents contain your health data or other personal data.
As our customer, you have the right to verify the data recorded about you in your patient documents and to request copies of these documents. If you find the data to be inaccurate or incorrect, you may ask for it to be corrected. However, you do not have the right to decide what data about you is recorded in your patient documents.
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 FSHS patients’ general and mental health data from 30 June 2016 onwards. Patient records and documents predating this can still be ordered from the FSHS. You are allowed to receive copies of patient documents once a year free of charge. After this, we will charge a fee as listed in our service charges.
Requesting copies of patient documents and imaging results
Order patient documents to your address
- Request patient documents by completing the relevant form.

Pick up the documents at an FSHS unit
- Request the patient documents by means of a signed letter.
- Submit the letter to an FSHS unit in your study town.

Requesting correction of patient documents
- You can ask for inaccurate or incorrect data to be corrected using the attached form.
- Requests for corrections can also be made direct to the staff member who recorded the information at the time of your appointment.
- Corrections to data will also be updated in the Kanta Data Repository.
- Because of the nature of the healthcare sector, we are occasionally forced to make decisions based on incomplete information. We can therefore only rectify data that is objectively incorrect based on the information available at the time of recording.
- You have the right to see the log data concerning your patient data in patient register for the two last years. You can’t get the older log data without a specific reason.
