The practice started on the Donegal Road in the early 1930s in the home of a Dr Clarke. In the mid 1940s Dr Sidney Matthews became the principal, to be followed in 1952 by Dr George Irwin. The centre of the practice by this time had moved to Lisburn Road. There was also a branch surgery at Dr Irwin’s home at Finaghy.

In 1955 Dr Irwin joined in practice with Dr Maurice Bamber, also working from his own home at Finaghy. Dr William Rowney became a partner in 1963 and Dr Desmond Price in 1969. Finaghy Health Centre was opened in 1965, the first purpose-built health centre in Northern Ireland. Dunluce Health Centre opened in 1980.
