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.


****For Roe Lane Surgery Patients who use Online Access, this service will not be available from Thursday the 15th of April at 12noon through to Tuesday the 20th of April. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. For further information please telephone the Surgery to speak to a member of our team****
