People may go to any healthcare centre they choose, but it is generally better to go to one which is close to home.
There are healthcare clinics all over the country and in all neighbourhoods in Greater Reykjavik. These provide all general healthcare services, and people go there for illnesses or other health-related problems.
In addition to general medical services, the clinics provide maternity care, infant and child healthcare, school healthcare and home nursing.
Children under the age of eighteen are not charged appointment fees at healthcare clinics or fees for house calls from doctors. However, children who do not have health insurance must pay the full fee.
