**** PATIENTS WITH ONLINE ACCESS: there have been a number of technical issues relating to patient access which we are currently rectifying, please bear with us while this is being resolved. For urgent prescription requests, please contact the Surgery - Thank you ****


As of the 1st of April, Dr Adele Farrell is GP Partner of Roe Lane Surgery following the retirement of Dr Alison Trevor. As a result of this, we are pleased to announce a merger of Christiana Hartley Medical Practice and Roe Lane Surgery.


We would like to reassure patients that you will still be able to access services, staff and clinics in the same way that you have become accustomed to in recent years. We will provide services across both sites and Roe Lane Surgery remains open and operational, however for face to face appointments with a GP or Nurse, you may be asked to attend Christiana Hartley Medical Practice on Curzon Road, which is a purpose built GP surgery approximately one and a half miles away.

With a greater number of staff including GPs, nurses, medicines management team and administrative staff, we will continue to provide patients with outstanding primary care services.

We are most grateful of your cooperation and support during the first few weeks of the merge as we attempt to make the transition as seamless as possible, please click here for further information.

COVID 19 Vaccination Information:

Vaccinations are being delivered according to priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The vaccinations will not take place at your GP practice, but rather a local vaccination service (led by GPs, practice nurses and community pharmacists) who are responsible for delivering the vaccine to people in your community.

 Please read additional information here

Community COVID-19 vaccination programme in Sefton:  Please read the following update from Southport & Formby Clinical Commissioning Group

GPs, working together with the CCGs are continuing to roll out the COVID-19 community vaccination programme in Sefton, which began at the end of December.

  The NHS will get in touch when it is your turn to be vaccinated.  

The order in which people will be offered the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination & Immunisation (JCVI) about who is most at risk from Coronavirus.  When each delivery of vaccine is received, it will be shared out fairly between practices in North & Central Southport. You may be required to remain on site for 15 minutes post-vaccination & a second dose of vaccine will be required; usually after 12 weeks.

Phase 1 - JCVI Priority Groups

  1. residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
  2. all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
  3. all those 75 years of age and over
  4. all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
  5. all those 65 years of age and over
  6. all individuals aged 16 years to 64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality
  7. all those 60 years of age and over
  8. all those 55 years of age and over
  9. all those 50 years of age and over

Please note, there are a number of other vaccination sites who may offer you an appointment too: the large national sites, the community pharmacy sites & the Southport hospital site (health & social care workers are being vaccinated at the latter). The speed with which we can work through the JCVI priority cohorts is limited by the amount of vaccine that our site is allocated, & the need to vaccinate care home patients/staff first.

This is the biggest vaccination programme the NHS has ever undertaken. It is a huge challenge and we are working hard to overcome any logistical issues as they may arise. So, the exact weekly roll-out of the programme will be largely shaped by the vaccine supply from the manufacturers.

The NHS has a clear vaccine delivery plan but it will take some time for GP practices to work through the number of people that need to be contacted. So we are asking everyone to be patient and until people are fully vaccinated with two doses, they are reminded to follow the current restrictions and guidance and play their part by following these steps:

  • Do not contact your GP practice or the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will contact you
  • When we do contact you, please attend your booked appointments
  • Please continue to follow all the guidance to control the virus and save lives by socially distancing, wearing a mask or face covering and washing your hands regularly

When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation to come forward.


This practice is supporting vital coronavirus (COVID-19) planning and research by sharing your data with NHS Digital. For more information about this see the General Practice Transparency Notice for GPES Data for Pandemic Planning and Research (COVID-19).
