Welcome to Loy Medical Centre

This family practice was established in 1946 prior to the inception of the Health Service in premises at Orritor Street by Dr Des Flanigan. He was subsequently joined by Dr John Flanigan at James Street in 1953. Dr Des emigrated to New Zealand in 1963 and the practice was maintained single-handedly by Dr John, who moved to the Health Centre in 1974, where he was  joined by Dr Paul Flanigan in August1987.

The practice was transferred to the present premises in November 1990, where Dr Paul Flanigan was joined by Dr Gabrielle Mc Keever in 1995, Dr Rosalyn Hutton in 2015 and Dr Stuart Davidson in 2018.
