We are building a new, stronger region
The regions in Finland are changing. Even though there still will be 18 regions in 2019, the structure of the regional organisations will be different. Here in Ostrobothnia we see the reform as a possibility to build an even stronger region than before - a task we'd like to do together with the inhabitants.
The health, social services and regional government reform is one of the biggest administrative and operational overhauls in Finland. The reorganisation of the regional and municipal tasks impacts the jobs of hundreds of thousands of people and affects the services of every citizen in the country. It also has an effect on the financial resources, steering and taxation of healthcare and social welfare services. The aim is to transfer the organisation of healthcare and social services and other regional services to counties as of 1 January 2019.
On a regional level the organisation responsible for the reform is the regional council.
What about the services?
As an inhabitant you will get the service you need at any of the organisations involved also during the reorganisation process.
We also would love to hear what you think is important when building an even stronger region of Ostrobothnia.
