The Emergency number in Iceland is 112 – Call or text in true emergencies. You can ask for an ambulance.
For medical care during business hours (8 AM – 4 PM or so) you can call the Healthcare District where you are located. Their phone numbers are listed below. Here’s a map of the districts:
For after hours help with urgent but not life-threatening medical issues, you can call 1770 for a doctor on call. (That number should work 24 hours a day.) From a non-Icelandic phone, dial +354 544-4113.

Here is the contact information for each of the 7 Healthcare Districts. Note that the regions are a bit confusing. For example, part of the Westfjords region is in the Westfjords, and part is in the Western region! Each region has several or more healthcare centers that are open during business hours.
