Welcome to Larne Family Practice
Larne Health Centre
(Previously Dr Howie, Caldwell & Wallace)
Our aim is to provide friendly, comprehensive and personal family health care. Dr Howie has been working in the Larne area since 1986 and established a new practice with Dr Heather Carlisle in August 1999. The practice has always aimed to provide a family orientated service to our patients. Dr Carlisle was instrumental in establishing the practice and concentrated on providing a traditional family practice with the highest standards. Dr Carlisle herself was troubled with ill health and sadly passed away in April 2008, her death was felt deeply by the practice team and patients alike. Dr Caldwell joined the practice as a partner in June 2008, but had been working in the practice since September 2006. Dr Wallace has been working with the practice since September 2008 and joined as a full-time partner in April 2009. Dr Wallace left the Practice in March 2016 to work closer to home. Dr Brown has been intermittently working with the practice since August 2014 but was previously one of the practice trainees. Dr Brown became a permanent GP within the practice in April 2016.
Over the next few months we will have a few different female GP's working with us but Dr Eve Armstrong will be joining us permanently from September. We hope you will be understanding during this period.
Everyone within the practice continues to work as a family and has high work ethics and high standards, this has resulted in the practice being as effective and efficient as possible whilst providing patients with 100% care and attention. The custom of family practice continues today and will always remain paramount to the entire practice team.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
