According to the Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS), a total of 600,000 people had to change their GPs against their will in 2020, and 100,000 people lack a GP because there is no spare capacity.
On Monday, the municipal sector’s organization will present a report in which they describe the GP situation as serious, newspaper VG writes.
KS is requesting an additional allocation of NOK 500-700 million in the state budget for 2022.
“The GP scheme is about to collapse in the municipalities. This is a serious situation. Basically, only Oslo doesn’t struggle with recruitment,” KS leader Bjørn Arild Gram noted.
