Information about appointments and visits at Helse Bergen
During the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, regulations on infection preventative actions have been taken to avoid the contamination of all patients within all of our hospital locations. In Norway, the epidemic is now under control, and the hospitals will therefore diminish regulations on visitations. Patients may now receive visits during their hospital stay. Patients are also allowed to be accompanied during their outpatient clinical consultations. Still, infection prevention measures are relevant. This includes a questionnaire to all patients on corona.
Before attending your appointment, we need to know if you may be infected by the corona virus.
Fill out the form at helsenorge.no (only in Norwegian)
Please fill out the form below, 3 days prior to your scheduled appointment. A link to the questionnaire will be sent to you via text-message.
Fill out the form at helsenorge.no

In case of telephone- or video consultation, you don`t need to fill out the form.
Upon attendance at your appointment
As a safety precaution, the questions will be repeated upon attending your appointment. This also applies for anyone accompanying you to the hospital, to avoid the contamination of COVID-19 within the hospital locations, and to keep our environment as safe as possible for all patients.
- If you answer “no” to all the questions, your appointment will be conducted as planned.
- If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, the consultant in charge (physician or psychologist, or other) will assess whether or not it is safe to conduct or defer your appointment.
- The consultant in charge will consider an alternative method of conducting the appointment if appropriate (e.g. telephone or tele-medicine)
In need of assistance to the hospital
From June 6th, Helse Bergen diminishes regulations on public visits at the hospital. At the same time, there is still a need to reduce risk of coronavirus contamination for all patients, and healthcare workers. Therefore, visitors must still contact the relevant department to plan their visit. Also, all visitors will be asked questions, to assess whether or not they pose a risk of contagion.
Please attend your scheduled appointment
It is important that you show up in due time for your appointment. You may need extra time to answer the questions upon arrival and locate your appointment facilities. However, it is important that you don’t spend more time at the hospital than necessary. Please, do not be late for your appointment, as this may cause unnecessary delays.
Because of the coronavirus epidemic situation, your appointment at the hospital may be rescheduled. If so, you will be contacted by telephone, or mail. If you experience any discomfort, or deterioration in your condition while awaiting your rescheduled appointment, please contact the department in charge of your appointment, (see details of contact information in your admission letter) or local doctor (fastlege).
Consultation via telephone or video
