General practitioners (GPs)/Family doctors

These doctors are the first point of contact for all general health problems. They treat certain illnesses and injuries (such as colds, fevers, etc.) and are responsible for longterm patient care. If they detect specific health problems, they will refer you to a specialised doctor.

To see a GP, either make an appointment or go to the on-duty hospital or a medical centre (accessible 24/7) without an appointment. Some GPs also make home visits if the patient is unable to leave home.

When you have an appointment, you should come on time or cancel by telephone. If you do not do so, the doctor may claim financial compensation.

You can choose your GP. To find the one closest to you, check the telephone directory or ask at the commune. Not all doctors work on evenings, weekends and public holidays but there is always at least one doctor on duty in each region.
