We kindly ask family physicians to refrain from referring patients with symptoms of upper-respiratory viral diseases, except in cases where COVID-19 has been ruled out. We would appreciate if this were also indicated on the referral. This way we can protect ourselves as well as our patients.

Examinations require a referral from a doctor, preferably in digital form. Please indicate on the referral note as precisely as possible the area in which examinations should be performed (e.g. x-ray image of right ankle joint 2s). Examination results are then uploaded to the image bank and the Patient Portal.

For information and registration in Tallinn call +372 605 1500 and in Tartu +372 731 2260.

Work organisation at Qvalitas Medical Centre

Today, the most important prerequisite for scheduled treatments is the existence and use of personal protective equipment. As a result, by following a systematic action plan, we can gradually reintroduce our services as a healthcare organisation.

With regard to the ongoing emergency situation, there may still be some changes in the work organisation of Qvalitas Medical Centre. Our call centre provides current information on Qvalitas’ work organisation.

Please note that the virus is still spreading and regardless of gradual restoration of services, we must continue to act in a responsible manner.

Nurses may ask visitors who are early for their appointment to take a little walk so as to prevent people from gathering on the premises. We would like to thank all our customers for being patient and understanding during this challenging time.

The door to our Tartu centre is locked to minimise the risk of infection, please knock and the customer service will open the door.

Health status assessment before appointments

The coronavirus continues to spread and it is still essential that we assess the probability of infection. Qvalitas Medical Centre must ensure a treatment process without threat of the virus; assessing the health status of our patients before appointments plays a big role in this.

As a prerequisite for their appointments, all patients must fill in a questionnaire to help us understand their health status. By answering all the questions truthfully, you help make sure that persons who may be infected cannot enter the centre.

Please take into account that you will be asked to answer questions over the phone before your appointment and this process will be repeated on site.
