When do I turn to occupational health care service?

If you are an employee, PhD student or postdoc, you have the right to order three anonymous counselling sessions per calendar year with a psychologist/behavioral scientist. If additional meetings are needed, these must be approved and ordered by your manager.

If you are in need of more or different occupational health care services, please contact your manager.

Heads of department and other managers can, in their capacity as employer representatives, turn to the occupational health service for help with rehabilitation, among other things.

If you are in need of medical care that is not considered work-related, please contact primary health care, such as your health care center or family doctor.

If the need is urgent, please contact the emergency care services or call 112.

How do I book?

All visits require an appointment. Booking can be done either through:

Always state:

  • which department/administrative office you belong to
  • name and Swedish social security number (personnummer)/
    co-ordination number before you get a Swedish social security number
  • if you need the session to be carried out in English.

Handling of personal data
