Finding a personal doctor

All residents of Røyken are automatically assigned a personal doctor who provides general medical services, emergency services and house calls when necessary. Personal doctors are obliged to give priority to their own patients. You can change your personal doctor up to twice a year without providing an explanation. Personal doctors are bound by official rules regarding rates, and their prices must be on display in their offices. Please note that you can choose not to have a personal doctor.

To register for a personal doctor, to find out who your or your child's personal doctor is or to change to another doctor please contact the Office for Personal Doctors on telephone +47 810 59 500 (answering machine in Norwegian only) or go to the web site Fastleger
