About us

Work with us

At InterHealth Worldwide we are passionate about supporting the health and wellbeing of those who are working to make the world a better place. Founded on Christian principles, we support over 10,000 people working for over 300 organisations based in the UK and around the world. We have two centres, one in London, UK and one in Nairobi, Kenya.

We provide occupational and travel health care, psychosocial support, training and travel supplies. We prepared 1,800 people to travel out from the UK to support the Ebola crisis in 2014. Our client organisations increasingly work in traumatic contexts and we have recently provided medical and psychosocial support and training in high security countries such as Turkey/Syria, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Somalia and Afghanistan. We work in country with both international and national staff, and aim to prepare people for assignments, support individuals and teams in situ and provide good aftercare at the end of an assignment or after critical incident. We also provide occupational health care to some 125 charitable organisations across the UK, including churches and dioceses.

London, UK
At our London clinic, we use an integrated approach to healthcare to support the physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing of individuals, which has been refined through 25 years of practice.
