Geneva, Switzerland –  If you or someone in your family comes down with a bad flu or small injury you don’t want to have to scramble to find urgent medical care. If you are new to the region you might want to write this one down: Permanences Medicales.

There are several of these centers in town; all take patients on a drop-in basis, are open until midnight and have doctors who speak several languages. A plus is that most medical insurance policies in Switzerland pay for services rendered at the Permanences.
