General Practitioners (GP) (Læge 🇩🇰)
Your GP specializes in diagnosing and treating the most common conditions and diseases. In most cases, your GP is, therefore, able to diagnose and treat you correctly. In some cases, however, your GP may send you to a specialist or hospital for further treatment. In this case, your GP writes a referral.
Your GP will write you a prescription if you need medicine. Prescription medicine can only be bought at a pharmacy. Some types of medicine, e.g., aspirin and antihistamine tablets, can be bought in pharmacies or supermarkets without a prescription.If further tests are required, fx at the hospital, you will receive a suggestion for an appointment in your E-boks.
Choice of General Practioner (GP): When you register your residence address at BorgerService, you are asked to choose a General Practitioner; you can use general healthcare questions. Your GP’s name, address, and telephone number appear on your health insurance card.
Choice of Security group: You are asked if you want to stand in groups 1 or 2. We encourage our students to choose group 1, as it gives free consultancies with the GP and access to specialist doctors via referrals. In “Group 2”, the referrals are not required and can be booked directly, but a consultancy with your GP will cost you a minimum of 300 DKK.
Opening Hours: Most GP clinics are open between 9.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. You can usually call between 8.00 and 9.00 a.m. and speak to your GP.
Essential to notice: prior booking of an appointment is always required, including emergencies. See more below in the section “Emergency Room”
Email consulting: You can also email your GP using the app “Din læge.” You can ask questions, book an appointment, or renew your prescription via email consultation.
