Functions
The following functions are used on the website:

Search
You can search the website for information in different ways. Use the general search function located in the top right corner on each page to search through the entire website’s material. Use the first search box on the start page to search for contact information. This can also be used to search for material concerning information about diseases, treatments, examinations and home care. The general search function can also be used to search for contact information and information on health care.

Feedback
The feedback form is created through a separate system. When feedback is given to a unit at the hospital, the form is automatically directed to that unit. It is possible to be anonymous when giving feedback. If, however, you wish to be contacted you need to add your contact information in the form.
