If you fall ill or suffer an injury outside your own GP’s normal opening hours (you can call the out-of-hours medical service – if the problem cannot wait until your own GP is available.

Lægevagten is open from 4 pm to 8 am during weekdays, during weekends, and public holidays - and also around the clock in case of sudden injuries. Please contact 112 in case of life-threatening situations in order to get an ambulance.

When calling Lægevagten, a doctor will answer your call, and either:

• You will get a consultation on the phone
• You will be asked to come for a consultation at an emergency service center. 
• Or – in special emergencies – a doctor will come and visit you in your home.

In many cases, you will be asked to contact your own GP for a consultation.

The out-of-hours doctor can, among other things, refer you to an accident and emergency department or admit you to a hospital.

The out-of-hours doctor will be able to assist you more quickly if you have your national health insurance card ready and if you have taken your temperature if you suspect you are running a fever.
