Practice History


The medical practice at 281 Ormeau Road was first established in 1893 by Dr J Davidson. The house was built as a wedding present for Dr Davidson by his father-in-law.

Dr Davidson was succeeded in early 1930 by Dr J Boyd, who subsequently left general practice in 1940 to accept a position as consultant anaesthetist at the Royal Victoria Hospital. Dr J B Young purchased 281 Ormeau Road and continued practising medicine there until his retirement in 1963 when his assistant Dr J D Henderson became his successor.

Dr C W Musgrave, who practised medicine at 297 Ormeau Road, joined Dr Henderson and the two practices were amalgamated. As the practice developed, with an increasing growth in the number of patients, Dr F C Gormley later joined the panel of doctors.

Dr R A Loane, at the time a senior surgical registrar, became a partner in 1970.

Dr Gormley left to work in England at the end of 1975 and was replaced by Dr B E Dean. After spending some time abroad in anaesthetics, Dr Ruth McKeown became the first female doctor to join the practice in 1979. Some years later, in 1984, as the practice continued to expand, Dr I G Rowan became the fifth partner. Dr Henderson retired in December 1996 and in February 1997 was replaced by Dr D B Cheyne. Dr R A Loane retired in 1998 and Dr Ruth McKeown in 2003. Dr Sharon E Gracey joined the practice in 2003.  Having worked as a locum for the Practice, Dr Cathy A McKeown became a partner in April 2010 on the retirement of Dr B E Dean.  Dr Ian Rowan retired in December 2017.  Dr Holly Dunlop and Dr Deborah Collins have also joined the Practice as Partners in the recent years.  The practice is not a limited partnership.

The building at 281 Ormeau Road was extensively renovated in 1986 to provide more surgeries and a treatment room and thereby a higher standard of service for patients. Over the last number of years further modernisation in the form of computerisation, re-design of the reception and waiting areas and the installation of a lift to the first floor have served to increase efficiency and the quality of care provided.

Diversity and Equality

Ormeau Park Surgery welcomes patients from all diverse groups.
