Contact Sundhedsplejen

You are very welcome to contact Sundhedsplejen up until your child turns 18 years old.


    The healthcare nurse's visits are a free service offered by the City of Aarhus.

    In your child’s first year, your healthcare nurse will come and visit you at home. 

    If you need it, we can maintain this contact throughout your child's time with a childminder (dagpleje) / day nursery (vuggestue), and kindergarten (børnehave). During school years, it is the school’s healthcare nurse who follows your child’s health. 

    If you need advice and guidance outside your healthcare nurse’s regular hours, you can call Sundhedplejen’s on-call telephone service.

    Opening hours of the on-call telephone service: 

    Monday-Sunday 9.00-12.00 and 17.00-19.00 at 70 20 80 08

    Via the on-call telephone service, you can get advice on your child’s development and well-being.

    • If your child cries a lot.
    • If your child sleeps poorly.
    • If your child is restless.

    You are always welcome to contact the on-call telephone service if you have problems with breastfeeding or if you are struggling with parenthood.

    Sundhedsplejen is divided into areas in the municipality of Aarhus and each team has a telephone number. 

    Find the areas and telephone numbers for the health care nurses in your area via the link below (information in Danish).

    Call Sundhedsplejen’s main number if you want a visit from your healthcare nurse after the birth and have not yet been contacted.

    You are usually contacted by your healthcare nurse a few days after the birth to arrange a visit. If this does not happen, you can call Sundhedplejen’s main number.

    Sundhedplejen’s main number: 

    89 40 53 45 between 8.00 - 13.00 on working days

    The secretary can provide you with the contact information of your healthcare nurse.

    Sundhedsplejen in the City of Aarhus will not be notified automatically if you have given birth in another municipality. In this case, you must notify Sundhedsplejen yourself.

    To get in touch with and arrange a visit from your healthcare nurse please call:

    Sundhedplejen’s main number

    There is a school health care nurse (skolesundhedsplejerske) at your child's school. The health care nurse will focus on your child's health and well-being.

    If you want to record a meeting with the healthcare nurse on video or audio, here are the things you need to know first.

    Video recordings

    You should always notify your healthcare nurse in advance if you want to film a conversation or a visit to your home. The healthcare nurse has the right to choose not to perform their work task if filming occurs without an agreement. Therefore, the healthcare nurse can limit the help to include only the necessary assistance in the home.

    You can arrange the filming of your meeting with your healthcare nurse. In this case, you may only use the recording for private use, unless you have agreed otherwise.

    The same rules apply if you want to film a meeting outside your home.

    Audio recordings

    You are welcome to make an audio recording of a meeting without informing the healthcare nurse. However, remember to inform the employee if you want to play the audio recording for anyone other than yourself.

    Do you find it difficult to remember what you agreed on at your meetings? If so, remember that you are always allowed to invite family or a friend to your healthcare meetings.
