Hi
We have just arrived in Geneva a couple of weeks ago. Our Health Insurance is in place but as yet we have no GP.

My husband has taken unwell and I think will need to see a Dr. Am very unsure how it all works so not sure whether there is out of hours here etc and also how it will work the fact I don't have a GP yet.

Would appreciate your help

Thanks

Re: Doctor

I have just had a look and the first sheet is a free number called Med Call which I presume I can call.... It is an 0800 number - does that sound right?
