সাবধান থাকা অবশ্যই দরকার। কিন্তু তারপরও দুর্ঘটনা হতেই পারে। আর তা মোকাবেলার জন্য কিছু ফোন নাম্বার জেনে রাখা খুবই দরকারি। বিশেষ করে জার্মানির মত দেশে তা আরো বেশি প্রয়োজনীয়! এই আর্টিকেলে আপনারা এরকম প্রয়োজনীয় কিছু ফোন নাম্বার খুঁজে পাবেন। ধন্যবাদ।

To find out Doctors:

To find out  a specialized doctor, refer to the sites: (www.gelbeseiten.de).

Select ” » Alle Branchen von A-Z » A »  and find the ‘Ärzte’ in which doctors are listed by their specialization. Also, you can ask your professor, colleague or friends for a general doctor. Other good sources of medical care are university clinics, which can usually be found in major cities or university towns. These clinics are staffed by highly skilled doctors who often speak English.

When making a doctor’s appointment by telephone or in person, the person you will speak to is the “Arzthelferin” or doctors assistant. She may not speak English, but do not worry, you will not be asked many questions, you simply need to set up a day and a time for an appointment

In URGENT case, call the “Ärztlichen Notdienst” (19222 in all of Germany). For the name of a doctor in your area, see also: www.aerzte-notdienst.de.

In case of emergency, when an ambulance is needed , you can call the number 112throughout Germany.

Pharmacies (Apotheke)

Pharmacies are usually open from 8 AM – 6 PM and are generally closed evenings, Saturday afternoons, Sundays and holidays. Most pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses and recommend over-the-counter remedies.
