Health

The county of Minden-Lübbecke has a good provision of medical care with a tight network of hospitals, doctors' surgeries, emergency services and pharmacists.

Everyone can personally choose his/her doctor and hospital.

If you need immediate medical attention, you should consult your local general practitioner. On Wednesday afternoons and from Saturday morning till Sunday evening, there is an emergency service in each town or village which can always be reached.

In extreme emergencies you can ring the general emergency number 112 day and night, this number works also if you need an ambulance service to the nearest hospital. This is where you can get competent help from the emergency services (emergency doctor, ambulance, paramedics).

Aside from the GPs there are specialists (ophthalmologists, dermatologists etc). Usually your GP will refer you to a specialist when necessary. Medication is available at the local chemist's. There is always at least one pharmacy in your area open for emergencies. The address of the available pharmacy can be found in the local paper under the headline emergency pharmacy (Apothekennotdienst). Every pharmacy has a sign showing which pharmacy is open in your area.

Protecting our citizens from health problems and keeping them healthy is the responsibility of the public health service. You can find further information on its services on the internet at http://www.minden-lübbecke.de (Gesundheit und Soziales / Gesundheit / Gesundheitsamt).




For all towns and villages

The addresses of the appropriate health insurance agencies can be found in your local phone book.

Information on care-giving expenses are also available at your health insurance agency.
