During the opening hours of your local health center, you must seek treatment at the health center's emergency services. During other times, you will receive required urgent treatment in the emergency clinics of our hospitals.  

When you are seeking treatment at a hospital emergency clinic, always call the toll-free Medical Helpline number 116 117 first. In an emergency, always call 112.

If you already have a referral to the emergency clinic, you do not need to call the Medical Helpline.

The most common symptoms that you should always have looked at in an emergency clinic: 

  • fever in a newborn 
  • convulsive child 
  • major injuries and bone fractures 
  • sudden severe headache 
  • difficulty breathing 
  • sudden onset of severe or worsening abdominal pain 
  • heavy bleeding
  • mental health problems requiring urgent treatment 
  • chest pain 
  • stroke symptoms, such as sudden flaccidity or incapacity of a limb or speech difficulties 

At the hospital emergency clinic, we always assess the need and urgency for treatment first. Based on this, you will be referred to a nurse or physician. Patients are treated in the order of urgency, not in the order of arrival. Therefore, a patient who has arrived after you may be admitted for treatment before you.
