Description of the clinic 

Medicine and Geriatric Clinic has a responsibility of county-level to meet the needs of both  basic and highly specialized inpatient and geriatric care for residents in the Highland  healthcare area. The care provided covers both the urgent need for care that occurs 24 hours a  day for the citizens and the planned, so-called elective need for care. 

Medicine and Geriatric Clinic is divided into nine sections: endocrinology, haematology, gastro enterology, pulmonary medicine, cardiology, neurology, stroke, renal medicine including dialy sis, geriatrics including mobile outpatient units, mobile geriatric team (MGT) and palliative  care unit (PVE). The sections are divided into six health care units. For each care unit, the re spective section of outpatient care is linked. This means logistical and staff-related benefits to  work in an integrated out-patient and in-patient care system, which brings multiple benefits to  our patients. 

The emergency medical activity, emergency department administratively belongs to the emer gency clinic but is staffed by doctors from the medical and geriatric clinic with a primary on call (two daytime at the weekend) and two secondary on-calls daytime and a primary on-call at  night. The stand-by duty is staffed as a dayshift. 


In cardiology, people with heart diseases are treated. The largest groups are angina pectoris,  myocardial infarction, heart failure, heart valve disease and arrhythmias. 

Cardiac intensive care is conducted at all three hospitals in the county. 

At cardiac nursing receptions, cardiac nurses follow up and plan immediate treatment during  their care after a cardiac event. They also plan for further cardiac rehabilitation efforts, such as  cardiac gymnastics, and educate in lifestyle issues and health.

For pacemaker and ICD receptions, patients come with pacemaker or ICD (inoperative defibril lator) to be controlled.
