Patients are satisfied, but want more available GPs

General practitioners are skilled and take patients seriously, their patients believe, but the wait and availability can be better.

This is the main conclusion in a report the Norwegian Institute of Public Health has commissioned from the Ministry of Health and Care Services.

The survey shows that 32 percent have to wait more than two days for emergency hours, and 36 percent usually have to wait more than a week to get a regular medical appointment. One in three patients respond in the study to sitting in the waiting room of the doctor for too long.

Several patients emphasize that the GP has too many patients, that the time set aside for consultation is short, and that the GP is experienced as stressed.

2,029 adult patients responded to the survey this year and last year.
