Attendance and user fees
The various out-of-hours medical centres across Norway are organised in different ways. In all municipalities, there is always at least one doctor on duty at all times. When you use the services of an out-of-hours medical centre, you must pay a user fee.
In most places in the country, you will be expected to call the out-of-hours medical service for an assessment before you decide whether or not you need to go to the centre. Good advice over the telephone can often be sufficient.
When you arrive at the medical centre, you must always contact the staff so that they can make a quick assessment of the urgency of your situation. If you have to wait, it will be because other people need help more urgently.
In order to provide the best possible care, the out-of-hours medical service will need information such as personal details, address, why you are contacting them, previous illnesses and any medicines you are taking.
