Due to the current situation with Corona virus, the clinic is open Monday to Friday from 09.00 until 15.00 for consultations.

As we have to limit the number of people we can have in the reception at any one time, you must have an appointment to come to the clinic. Please only come at your appointed time to avoid too many people waiting, and you must wear a surgical type mask. These are the only type we can accept. We sell them at the clinic if you do not have one.

You can make an appointment by the following ways:

We will always see patients, however if you feel that you have symptoms that we should be aware of like fever, cough, shortness of breath etc, please advise us when making the booking or arriving at the clinic.

The situation is constantly changing and we will do our best to keep you informed.

Thank you

International Health Centres Team


The International Health Centres have been providing primary care for both residents and tourists in the Albufeira area since 1989. Dr Stephen Beck joined Dr Bernard Landau the following year, and the new premises were opened in Oura Village at the bottom of the strip in 1991. Dra Heleen Kampraath has been working with the International Health Centres intermittently for the last 15 years and has now become a regular member of the team. Joining in 2017 is Dra Ana Rodrigues, who has come from Paris, France to join the practice.

The clinic is run on the English and Dutch general practice model of doctors offering primary medical care to patients on an out-patient basis during opening hours, and providing an on-call service for emergencies 24/7 out of hours. Over the years the services offered by the clinic expanded to include dentistry, physiotherapy/osteopathy and nursing, plus a range of medical, para-medical and diagnostic ancillary services.

Three year ago the International Health Centres joined the Hospital Particular Group of medical facilities with its network of specialist clinics, hospitals and diagnostic centres spread across the entire Algarve. This closer cooperation between the primary general practice and secondary specialist and hospital care has allowed the International Health Centres to offer its patients a quality and speed of care second to none.

The International Health Centres is now one of the top clinics in the Algarve, staffed by doctors of English and Dutch nationality, plus Dutch physiotherapist/osteopath and ancillary staff of mixed nationality providing a friendly, caring and quality service.
