Summary

Key messages

The Commonwealth Fund’s annual international survey of health systems in 2016 shows that it is easier to get health care out of hours in Norway than in the other countries. There is a small percentage of the Norwegian respondents who report problems paying for health care. This is in line with the other countries, but the proportion has increased from 5% in 2010 to 8% in 2016. In Norway, more than 1 out of 5 report that they have dropped dental visits due to costs.

Norwegian respondents report poorer experiences with their regular doctor than respondents from other countries in areas such as:

  • Communication
  • User participation
  • Consultation time

Several questions about accessibility and primary care scores lower in Norway than in other countries:

  • Waiting time for seeing a specialist
  • Percentage who get an appointment with their doctor the same or next day

Norway scores slightly worse than the average of the other countries on:

  • Information and coordination between services
  • Discharge process from hospital

Several aspects of hospital discharge have improved over time in Norway:

  • Information on prescription drugs
  • Written information at discharge from hospitals
