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. 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. Dra Ana Rodrigues, who has come from Paris, France joined the practice in 2017 and Dr Pedro Carmo who is Portuguese but trained in the UK joined our practice in 2021.

The clinic is run on the English French 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 for patients of the practice. Over the years the services offered by the clinic expanded to include physiotherapy/osteopath, psychology, podiatry and nursing, plus a range of medical, para-medical and diagnostic ancillary services.

Almost 10 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 now one of the top general practice surgeries in the Algarve, staffed by doctors of English, French Portugeuse and Dutch nationality, plus Dutch physiotherapist/osteopath and ancillary staff of mixed nationality providing a friendly, caring and quality service.
