During the summer of 2020 Dr Wright has made the decision to retire from General Practice after 32 years at the end of a very rewarding and satisfying career.

Dr W Wright M.B., D.C.H.,M.R.C.G.P (QUB 1981)

Part time partner
Interests include: Minor surgery, paediatrics, antenatal care & medical student training.

Dr Wright joined Ballygomartin Group Practice in 1987 and replaced the outgoing partner Dr Larry Warke .

The practice operated from a house at 17 Ballygomartin Road serving 7000 patients. Dr Wright took keen interest in medical student teaching, GP training and supervised the updating of the records. The practice was reapproved for GP/medical student teaching and he became the first GP trainer. Many of the current partners today were trained by him.

Dr Wright also supervised medical student teaching, and the practice was awarded the runner up Robert Harland prize for medical student teaching in 2017 from QUB out of 120 practices in NI. An award that he and the Drs and staff are very proud of. Dr Wright was awarded an honorary lecturer from (QUB).

Although general practice has changed in many ways over the years he hopes the practice keeps the patient and family health needs at its core.


All the staff at Ballygomartin Group Practice wish him a happy, healthy and enjoyable retirement. He will be greatly missed.


If anyone would like to pass on their well wishes please email our practice secretary eva.coates.z00104@gp.hscni.net.  These will be presented to Dr Wright at a later date.
