Practice History


Our Practice can trace its roots to approximately 130 years ago in the late 1880s when Dr Ferguson decided to open a single handed family practice in Oldham.

He practiced for around 30 years before passing the Practice onto Dr Halliday who also practiced in the region of 30 years.

Dr Albert Orr took over the Practice and after a few years formed a partnership with a fellow Scot by the name of Dr McKenzie and practiced from 170 Middleton Road in the Westwood area of Oldham.

Following some turmoil, Dr Orr dissolved the partnership and moved to Marjory Lees Health Centre, whilst Dr McKenzie practiced from his residence on Windsor Road in Coppice.

Sometime after, Dr Orr formed another partnership with a young Bangladeshi doctor in 1975 by the name of Delowar Husain Chowdhury. Two years later, on Dr Orr’s retirement, the Practice had its first female GP, Dr Hasina Chowdhury. She is the wife of late Dr D H Chowdhury.

Dr Mohua Chowdhury who is their daughter qualified from UMDS (Guys & St Thomas’ Hospital Medical Schools, London) in 1996 and joined the Practice in 2000.

In November 2009 the practice relocated to the new Integrated Care Centre.
