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.
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.
The International Health Centre in Albufeira Algarve gives both residents and visitors peace of mind should they need medical assistance.
The surgery offers general practice with English and Dutch doctors (also speaking Portuguese, French, Spanish and German) Dentist and Physiotherapist working every day during the week.
The clinic is open Monday to Friday from 09.00 to 17.00 and 10.00 until 12 noon on Saturday, during the summer months (May until September inclusive). The International Health Centres also offers a 24 hour on call service should you need a doctor out of surgery hours. Ring 00351 289588923 (24 hour number).
The surgery has 4 general practitioners: Dr Bernie Landau, Dr Steve Beck, Dr Christa Ringers and Dr Helena Kampfraath. A general practitioner (GP) is a medical doctor who treats acute and chronic illnesses and provides preventive care and health education to patients. GPs are skilled in diagnosis especially at an early stage of a condition.
The surgery offers care to all age groups and is your family practice. A GP’s job is also to know when and where to refer you if you require further investigations or treatment. This will be co- ordinated by your doctor and they will arrange the secondary care treatment with the specialist and ensure continuity, however many things can also be treated at the surgery.
For people traveling to Portugal for longer than one month we offer a special care card with reduced GP consultations. Call us or come in to the clinic for more details."
