Health care services in England

Stripes Europe

If you experience a medical emergency while you are stationed in England, help can be found nearby, either on base or off. The main medical facility for servicemembers in England is the 48th Medical Group at RAF Lakenheath. However, other medical facilities are available throughout the country. 

In case of an emergency, dial 911 if on base or 999 off base. While off base, you can also call 111 for less urgent medical attention. For more information about 111, visit
