A new emergency telephone number was set up in April 2012 that is valid throughout Germany and enables you to reach a doctor on call. So, if someone falls ill and local doctors’ surgeries are closed, you can phone 116 117 for assistance anywhere in the country free of charge. However, this number should not be confused with the international emergency number 112.
