Welcome to International Health Centres
The International Health Centres have been providing primary care for both residents and tourists in the Albufeira area since 1989. Originally founded by Dr Bernard Landau, who was joined by Dr Stephen Beck the following year, the practice has continued to grow and change. Since this time, excellent doctors have worked at the practice to help build it into what it is today. A general practice surgery that prides itself on caring and looking after its patients, and going the extra mile.
Now, after more than 34 years of offering a high quality of medicine, we now have a young team of doctors working at the practice. All with different backgrounds and experience to complement our team.
Dra Ana Rodrigues, joined us from Paris, France in 2017. Born in Portugal, Dra Ana also speaks English and French, as well as her native Portuguese. She is the Medical Director of the practice.
Dr Pedro Carmo is also Portuguese. He studied, qualified and trained in Manchester United Kingdom , and joined our practice in 2021. He is bi-lingual in English and Portuguese.
The third member of our team of General Practice Doctors is Dr Tiago Almendra. Dr Tiago is from Braga in the North of Portugal. He moved south to the Algarve to work in the very demanding Portuguese National Health Service and joined our practice part time in January 2023. Dr Tiago speaks English and his native Portuguese.
The clinic is run on the English and French general practice model of doctors offering primary medical care to patients on an out-patient basis. Over the years the services offered by the clinic expanded to include physiotherapy/osteopathy, psychology, podiatry and nursing, plus a range of medical, para-medical and diagnostic ancillary services.
Almost 15 years 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 one of the top general practice surgeries in the Algarve, staffed by doctors of English, French and Portuguese working experience, plus a Dutch physiotherapist/osteopath and ancillary staff of mixed nationality providing a friendly, caring and quality service.

I was treated by Dr Helena Kampfraath for hypertension and breathing problems. Her professionalism, warmth and kindness quickly made me confident in her and she was able to diagnose a serious cardiovascular problem that had eluded the medical services at home for a number of years.Louiselle Lamontagne (Facebook Review)
