The public health system has developed from a hospital-centred model into a system where the main emphasis is on prevention, promotion and primary services. A new Health Care Act proposed in June 2010, which will give patients more choice about where they are treated, is the first part of a total reform of the health and social system that the Finnish government wants to introduce.
Healthcare expenditure is estimated at US$26.4 billion in 2011, over three quarters of which is public
