Urgent & Emergency Care

In the United Kingdom, while off base, dial 999, on-base, dial 911, or go to the nearest emergency room. Some military treatment facility locations offer emergency room services and others do not, so be sure to be familiar with the clinics and services offered at your location. The RAF Lakenheath Urgent & Emergency Care Center can be reached directly at DSN 226-4226, or by calling 01638524226.

Medical emergencies are the sudden and unexpected onset of a medical condition that:

  • Is threatening to life, limb, or eyesight;
  • Requires immediate medical treatment; or
  • Manifests painful symptoms that requires immediate response to alleviate suffering.
