Emergency care


If you have an accident or need urgent care and can’t wait to see your GP, you can visit your nearest legevakt (emergency room). All municipalities in Norway have an emergency room that’s open 24 hours a day. You should call 116 117 to get in touch with your local emergency room.

If the situation is life-threatening, you should call 113 straight away. All immediate healthcare costs are covered, so you won’t be charged for emergency care.

Emergency telephone numbers:

Fire - 110 Police - 112 Ambulance - 113
