In an emergency, dial 112
If you feel that the emergency is life-threatening, please specify that you need the SAMU (an ambulance with a doctor on board will be sent.)
If you need to attend an accident and emergency department outside normal working hours, you should ring 112 and they will tell you which hospital is receiving patients.
For children under the age of 14 years, the Kanner clinic at Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg , is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

In the evening, you can simply turn up and you will be seen by a doctor. As of July 2020 please note to phone 20333111 if you need an out of hours appointment
After midnight, if you need to see a general practitioner, you should call 112; you will either be advised to attend one of the 3 locations listed above, or you will be offered a home visit.
