Medical services

Whether youth dental care, school entry examinations or medical examinations: Here you can find all information about the medical services of the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg. Examinations are carried out and medical reports are drawn up in the medical consultation hours in the district's health service. In addition, court-ordered and confidential medical reports are also prepared. Appointments are possible by prior appointment.

In many legal provisions, a medical examination by a public health officer is explicitly prescribed. They are often commissioned even if this is not explicitly prescribed. One of the reasons for this is that public health officers are distinguished by their particular independence as well as by their special additional expertise in the field of public administration. They work on behalf of other authorities as well as other private persons.
