Information about the Norwegian GP system

International students without a Norwegian social security number. 

If you are here for a short-term stay and do not receive a Norwegian ID-number, you will not be allocated a GP, but you will still have access to medical services.

International students with a Norwegian social security number. 

If you have received a social security number, you will be allocated a GP in or near Bergen. You can change your GP to one of our medical centres if you like. If you have a GP in Bergen, you will not receive emergency appointments with our doctors.  

How to change your GP  

You can change your GP twice each calendar year, and this is how you do it. 

You don’t need to change your address to Bergen to have a GP here. But those that have changed their address within Norway (and reported it to the National Registry), and within three years move back to their municipality, can have their former GP back.  

Out-of-hours medical service

If you cannot get an appoint with our medical centres, or it’s outside office hours, Bergen has an Emergency Clinic at Solheimsgaten 9, as well as smaller clinics in Fana, Loddefjord and Åsane.

More information is found here (page is in Norwegian).

General information regarding out-of-hours medical service in Norway is found here.


If you visit any of Sammen’s health services, you only need a valid Student ID.

For any of the other public health services, you need to bring a valid form of ID such as driver’s license or passport. You also need to bring your EHIC-card or proof of insurance if you have either of those.

More information for students within the EU/EEA or Switzerland is found here.

More information for students outside the EU/EEA or Switzerland is found here.

Fees and prices

There is a fee for both appointment and prescribed medicine if you visit one of our medical centres.
