You can usually find a list of healthcare centres (vårdcentral) on the Health Authority sites for the regions/cities you are interested in under landsting

Or in the yellow pages phone book (gula sidorna)

Family Doctors tend to work in community healthcare centres called Vårdcentral where several doctors, community nurses, midwives and physiotherapists - sometimes others as wll such as dieticians/phlebotomists/dentists/psychologists etc all work together

Family doctors are often called Distriktsläkare - district doctor

Try this: http://www.doktorsguiden.se/ Where it says "Postnummer eller ort" you type your area code or the name of the place and you will get a list of doctors in that area. You could choose "Allmänmedicin" and "Stockholm" for exemple and get a list of those. http://www.doktorsguiden.se/sok?search-api...place=Stockholm

would skip Vårdcentral altogether- impossible to get times and give awful informaton in cases of even emergency - the standard answer is "wait and see if it gets better" even with infants-its not worth the risk- either use a private doctor (and all the red swedes go booo) or go straight to the hospital. I waited 2 days to see a private doctor instead of the 5 weeks at Vårdcentral..if Id have waited id be in a serious way.
