Expanded Free Choice of Hospital

If the waiting time for treatment at your public hospital exceeds 30 days

If your doctor has referred you for treatment at a hospital, and you cannot be treated within 30 days, you can take advantage of the offer for Expanded Free Choice of Hospital..

Your regular doctor or a specialist (often a dermatologist) will send a referral to a public hospital, after which the hospital will respond with the expected waiting time within 8 days. The response can refer to a waiting time for a preliminary examination, treatment, or a diagnostic examination. If treatment at a public hospital cannot be started within 30 days, you can choose to request treatment at another hospital that has a shorter waiting time. Please note that the selected hospital must have entered into an agreement with Danish Regions about Expanded Free Choice of Hospital. Hudkræftklinikken.dk [The Skin Cancer Clinic] has such an agreement, and therefore you can choose to be treated by us.
