- general physician/family doctor (splošni zdravnik) in your local health care center,
- pediatrician (pediater) for children,
- gynecologist (ginekolog) for women,
- dentist (zobozdravnik) for problems with your teeth.
In case you need to see a general physician outside their working hours (on weekends, during holidays or at night), you can go to the on-call duty medical service (dežurni zdravnik) in your local healthcare center. You should seek emergency medical services (nujna pomoč) only in cases when your life may be threatened or you there may be severe consequences for your health. Otherwise, you will have to pay for the services yourself.
When making an emergency call you will need to:
- call the free emergency number 112,
- introduce yourself,
- explain what happened,
- explain who needs help,
- give your location.
It is important to stay calm and listen to the instructions carefully.
To see a clinical specialist contact your personal doctor and you will be referred to a clinical specialist or hospital for additional diagnostic methods and treatment. There you will also get the information how to make an appointment (through online system or personally). When making an appointment, select from the list of available specialists and call via phone or send an e-mail to book an appointment. You will be informed about the date and time of your appointment. When you visit the doctor, always bring your health insurance card, any test results, prescriptions or vaccination record and the medical referral from your personal doctor.
