No new treatment requests due to COVID-19

We regret to inform you that due to national travel and health restrictions following the COVID-19 pandemic we are not able to offer any new appointments for planned care at Sahlgrenska University Hospital until further notice. In these unprecedented times, the priority is to secure care for those already here who need it the most. Elective care that can wait, will be postponed to enforce the hospital’s COVID-19 readiness.

We hope that we will be able to resume planned care for international patients as soon as deemed possible. Please contact us again in 1-2 months to get a new update on the current status.

In the meantime, stay safe!

New Intestinal Failure Centre now open

Today is a big day for Sahlgrenska University Hospital! The inauguration of the  Intestinal Failure Centre is taking place right now.

Head of centre Jan Brun and pediatric surgeon Helena Broberg present the new Intestinal Failure Centre.

It is an even bigger day for the entire team working with this patient group, who have worked hard the past years to make this a reality. It is now one of its kind, in Sweden. Congratulations!

But most importantly, this is for the patients and their relatives. Both children and adults. By connecting all specialist competencies to one centre, better care will be provided. The key? To involve the patients and their close ones in the development of their care.

Every year we welcome patients from Norway, Denmark and Iceland  for treatment for intestinal failures. The centre hopes to expand this collaboration further in the years to come.
