Examinations, consultation, teleconsultations, house calls
You can make an appointment for an examination or for a personal consultation with your GP. Your GP also offers teleconsultations if you need to renew your prescription, etc. In special circumstances, your GP may pay a house call.
Your GP’s name, address and telephone number is printed on your health card (sundhedskort).
Treatment or referral
After diagnosing your illness or injury, your GP can initiate a treatment or refer you to a specialist or a hospital for another form of treatment.
Your GP can assist you when you:
- are suffering from a minor ailment
- are taken ill acutely
- suffer minor injuries
- need to renew your prescription
- need a medical certificate
Via your GP’s web site (see www.sundhed.dk/find-behandler)you can book appointments, renew your prescription and send your GP an e-mail.
When your GP is closed
If you need help outside of your GP's normal hours, please contact the Medical Helpline by dialing (+45) 70 11 07 07. Physicians and nurses will advise you about proper treatment. For example, they can refer you to a hospital emergency department or an urgent care center.
If you need urgent medical assistance with acute, life threatening illness or with injury, then call 112.
Changing your GP
If you want to change to a new GP, contact the local municipality or fill in the appropriate form on www.borger.dk or the website of your local municipality.
