Dr Henrique Pacheco
General Practitioners are essential for diagnosing numerous health issues. Then, they either deliver effective treatments or refer you onwards for specialist intervention.
One of the GPs at the Oval Centre – Dr Henrique Pacheco – is able to provide this vital primary healthcare role with empathy and superb listening skills. Even if you need a GP who speaks Portuguese, Spanish or French, as well as fluent English.
That’s because Dr Pacheco – a specialist in General and Family Medicine – originates from Portugal. He graduated from Medical School at the University of Porto and also completed a postgraduate degree there in Sports and Exercise Medicine in 2011.
Shortly after, Dr Pacheco founded a Sports Medicine Company in his home country. His passion for healthcare meant that he also took posts as an NHS Family Doctor, with an A&E department, and private medical centres in the North of Portugal.
When invited to work in England for private healthcare, Dr Pacheco was delighted to relocate, and then join the team at Oval in 2020.
Here, he can continue to foster the clinic’s important role in providing health support for the Portuguese community of London.
Dr Pacheco retains his respected profile in Portugal and uses spare time for family life and his two young sons.
