Primary care

One significant feature of the Danish healthcare model is the unique organisation of primary care, which actively contributes to ensuring citizen-centred healthcare services of the highest quality to all citizens.

Longer life expectancy, an increase in chronic diseases, and more expensive treatments are rising the demands for healthcare services. In order to address these challenges, the Danish healthcare system is undergoing a transformation which focus on strengthening primary care and municipal healthcare services.   

New initiatives include local healthcare centres and rehabilitation services, which will be provided by Danish municipalities in close cooperation with general practitioners.
