Health Status Review, Work Ability Assessment, and Rehabilitation Counselling

Health status review

An Employment Services Unit nurse will perform a health check-up on the customer during which the nurse assesses the need for care and support and provides health advice and guidance. If needed, the nurse will programme a referral to a laboratory and book an appointment to a health centre doctor, or guide the customer to some other health care service.

Work ability assessment

If needed, the customer of the Employment Services Unit can be guided to a specialist for a work ability assessment.

Rehabilitation counselling

The rehabilitation secretary of the Employment Services Unit assesses the customer’s possibilites for rehabilitation and guides the customer to the rehabilitation services of employment pension institutions or Kela (The Social Insurance Institution of Finland) at need. The rehabilitation secretary can also assess the customer’s possibilities for invalidity pension.
