General practioner

All residents in Norway - including asylum seekers - are entitled to and may have a GP.  The GP works in the primary health care services in the municipalities.

In case of acute illness outside the GP's working hours you must call:

  • Phone 116 117 - the casualty ward (public medical ward) or
  • Phone 1 1 3 – emergency


Emergency 1 1 3
