The health service of the Basque Country Osakidetza, is going to finish the incorporation of the telephonic service. This service allows you medical advice by the nursing staff and gives primary management appointments.
In 2012 this service is at your disposal. Apart from this, the advices and the quotes are not the only thing that the service offers. The services are going to increase: reminders, health alerts, administrative procedures, information on the health system, etc.
The system is specially oriented to the patients who have chronic disease. For patients who act from their houses and other patients who receive the telephonic advices will not have to go to health centers or hospital.
