Telephone times seem to be a total waste of time in Sweden - unless you have a phone with automatic callback - the ones at Vårdcentralen are worst as you hang around all morning and never get through.

Try e-mail if you have an e-mail addy - often people answer e-mails at other times of the day - I usually find daily/twice daily e-mail works best as they get so sick of you the reply just to get rid of you.

Nuname, this is what to do:

1. Email. They tend to be pretty quick on these and it proves you have made contact.

2. Personal visit. It's worth dragging yourself up to get there 10 minutes before they open and stand right by the nummerlapp machine so you will be served first. This will save you a lot of time and frustration.
