As of the 1st of April, Dr Adele Farrell - GP Partner of Christiana Hartley Medical Practice has joined Roe Lane Surgery and now leads our Practice Team.

Dr Alison Trevor retired on the 31st of March 2021 and as a result of this, Dr Farrell is now GP Partner of Roe Lane Surgery.

We will provide services on both sites and will offer a broader range of choice for all of our patients. Roe Lane Surgery remains open and operational, however patients may be asked to attend Christiana Hartley Medical Practice for a face to face appointment with a Nurse or GP. Roe Lane Surgery staff are working across both sites and we now have a more extensive team of clinical and administrative staff including GP's, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurse Prescribers, Healthcare Assistants, Phlebotomists, and a medicines management team. We have the capacity to meet the demands of our current list size which will exceed 10,000 patients.

The staff will be led by Dr Adele Farrell and supported by the practice management team. We would be grateful of your co-operation and support during the first few weeks of the merge as we attempt to make the transition as seamless as possible.

Patients can continue to call 01704 228439 in order to contact the Surgery and will be automatically diverted to Christiana Hartley Medical Practice. We would like to encourage patients to use 01704 531114 in order to familiarise themselves with the new Surgery number too. There will be minimal disruption to patients throughout this transition, processes that everyone has become used to over the last 12 months such as prescription ordering, booking an appointment and making a general enquiry will not change. Both Practices share the same commitment to quality and patient care, by merging we are able to share our ways of working, develop our services, use the skills and expertise of a wider group of GP's, Nurses and administrative staff and there will be greater flexibility for patients in accessing healthcare services.

Christiana Hartley Medical Practice is a purpose built GP surgery approximately one and a half miles away from Roe Lane situated at 5 Curzon Road, Southport, PR8 6PL.

Patients will continue to receive the high quality care with continuity that Roe Lane Surgery has always provided over the years, we would however wish to hear from any patients who anticipate or experience any concerns or difficulties whatsoever. If you have any questions or comments or would like further information, please email


We will continue to communicate effectively with our patients regarding forthcoming changes and updates regarding the merging of our Practices.
