In luxembourg, Medical Houses were set up to stand in for general practitioners during the night, weekends and on bank holidays.
Medical Houses are a replacement service for when medical practices are closed. In case of fever, angina, cold, gastrointestinal disorders, pain, lumbago, small cuts etc., the patient can go to Medical Houses instead of waiting hours at the emergency rooms at the hospital.
Be aware that, even though these centres offer medical care when doctors practices are closed, they should not be considered as emergency services. In the event of a medical emergency you should always call 112 directly. Also : after midnight, it is mandatory to first call 112. Your call will be passed on to the doctor on call at the Medical House who will call you back as soon as possible. The doctor could make home visit if they deem it to be necessary according to the situation.
