The local emergency units are available for urgent, but non life-threatening medical treatment. For sudden, serious illnesses and injuries, you should turn to an emergency clinic at a hospital.

Another option for seeking medical advice without having to visit a hospital or a clinic, is by calling 11-77 where you can get advice from licensed nurses.

For participants coming within the Linnaeus-Palme programme and who thereby are provided with a travel insurance by SRCUC; please note the restrictions of the insurance related to medical care stated in the insurance letter.

In case of emergency

Important! Should an emergency occur and your life might be at risk you should always call the national emergency number first, which is 112! Please save this number to your phone. This service is available free of charge from mobile phones and landline.
