Medical Emergency Service – Call +45 7011 3131   
( In an acute emergency, dial 112 )

If you need emergency medical assistance outside your own general practitioner’s opening hours, the medical emergency service phones are open between 1600 and 0800 on weekdays and 24 hours a day at weekends and on bank holidays.

The telephone number is the same wherever you live in the Central Denmark Region. Exceptions to this are the emergency medical services on Anholt and Endelave, where the islands’ own doctors provide emergency assistance.

REMEMBER that you must always make an appointment with the emergency medical service before you go to the clinic.

Call and make an appointment before you go

AT Emergency medical service we receive and treat patients who:

  • Have suffered injury within the last 24 hours
  • Are suffering from an acute, serious illness
  • Have been seriously injured
  • With heart failure


Patients are registered on arrival, and depending on their condition they will be referred to the waiting room or possibly to a ward. Some patients will be referred for examination by their own doctor of the Medical Emergency Service.

The condition of patients in the waiting room will be continuously evaluated with regard to priority and examination to ensure that patients are given the right treatment.

In an acute emergency, dial 112 to contact the police, call for an ambulance or the fire-fighting service. Speak slowly and distinctly. State telephone number and address.

(Emergency calls from public pay phones are free.).
