Ambulance and the Emergency Number 112
Always call 112 in urgent emergency situations, such as in case of a sudden attack of illness, unconsciousness or if someone’s life is in danger. If you are unsure whether a situation is an emergency or not, it is always better to call and ask. The emergency services helpline will assess what kind of help is needed and will give you advice.
If there is no immediate life-threatening situation, patients requiring urgent treatment should first attend their local health station between 8.00 and 15.30. Your postcode determines your local health station. Call your local health station to make an appointment.
If you are not sure what to do, please contact the medical advice helpline or the Joint Emergency Services.
If you call with a mobile phone please dial +358 (0)2 231 4543. The call will be charged at a local rate.
The hearing-impaired have their own service for the evaluation of medical care, counselling and making an appointment at a health station. The service can be contacted during office hours by texting to +358 044 907 3824.
