You are permitted to change your GP twice per calendar year.
In addition to the ordinary changes, you can change your regular GP if you give notice of a change of address to the Norwegian National Registry or if your regular GP leaves the surgery or cuts his/her patient list.
You can also choose a regular GP in a different municipality to the one in which you live.
You will not receive a letter confirming that you have been assigned a new regular GP. If you require such a letter, call Veiledning helsenorge.no (user service) at phone number 23 32 70 30.
All inhabitants who are registered in the National Registry as living in a Norwegian municipality have the right to a regular GP (general practitioner/family doctor).
