How to get medical help

How to Get in Touch with a Doctor
Phone your doctor in his or her office hours, typically in the morning, to make an appointment. The name, telephone number and address of your doctor are written on your health insurance card. You can also look it up in the telephone directory under Læger. You must always remember to bring your yellow health insurance card. It is a good idea to bring with you accurate and complete physical and mental health information to secure a safe and healthy study abroad experience.

Doctor on Duty
If you need to consult a doctor outside regular work hours on weekdays (i.e. between 16:00 and 08:00), on weekends or public holidays, you must call the doctor on duty (Lægevagten), phone: 7011 0707. You should only consult the doctor on duty in case of acute illness. You have to call in advance to talk to a doctor before going to see him/her.

In cases of a serious emergency, dial 112 (free call from pay phones). Ask for an ambulance, the police or the fire department (what ever is relevant), state your name, address and the telephone number you are calling from. Stay by the telephone until your information has been confirmed.

Emergency Rooms
If you need emergency treatment you can contact the Emergency Room. It is open day and night for injuries incurred within the last 24 hours. On those conditions, emergency treatment is free.

It is very important that you call in advance to the Emergency Room before getting there.
