What you take to the emergency room
The emergency room does not have access to your medical record from the hospital, GP, or others.
You must bring identification, an overview of regular medicines, relevant medical documents (reports from hospitals or similar) and eventually healthcare exemption card.
When you get to the emergency room
Contact the staff at the entrance immediately if you are critically injured or seriously ill. Otherwise, take a queue ticket. When your number appears in the display in the waiting room, you can talk to the nurse in a separate reception room. The nurse assesses with you whether a doctor's consultation is necessary.
All patients are prioritised according to medical criteria. The nurse in the satellite emergency room assesses which degree of urgency you belong to.
You must pay a deductible for treatment at the emergency room. You must also pay for bandages, medications and other equipment that is used.
For people with a healthcare exemption card, children under the age of sixteen, people who have their first service in the military, and pregnant women having a consultation related to the pregnancy, the consultation itself is free. You will still have to pay for bandages, medications and other equipment used.
The emergency room has a payment machine in the waiting room. It is possible to pay in cash at the payment machine at the satellite emergency room at Våland. It is also possible to get an invoice or pay via mobile phone.
If you leave the emergency room without paying, an invoice will be sent by SMS or by post, if it is sent by post, an invoice fee will be charged.
If you have questions regarding payment / invoice, please contact our partner Convene on telephone 21 62 73 20 or via the contact form: Contact us - Convene
Patients who are supervised by a doctor in an ambulance and driven directly to the hospital are sent an invoice afterwards. Our doctors show up together with the ambulance in the event of a serious illness or accident.
Exceptionally, the doctor may do home visits. This is only relevant if it is considered medically necessary. During the day, contact your GP.
