Have you come up with a nickname for the Contact Point for Cross-Border Health Care in Finland?


Here comes the facial exercise of the day. Assume a comfortable position and try to say the following phrases out loud:

  • Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
  • Contact Point for Cross-Border Healthcare
  • She sells seashells by the seashore
  • Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he?

Yep, the official name of our Contact Point is a real tongue twister. We are therefore looking for a nickname for our service, something that would roll of the tongue a little easier.

The Contact Point distributes information on the use of health care services in Finland and abroad. We give guidance to people leaving Finland to seek treatment abroad and to those who fall ill while staying abroad. We also advise people who come to Finland for treatment and those who fall ill during their stay in our country. We distribute information through the choosehealthcare.fi website and the Contact Point’s Twitter account. We also respond to enquiries sent to yhteyspiste(at)kela.fi.
