CHRISTIANA HARTLEY MEDICAL PRACTICE & ROE LANE SURGERY - MERGER OF PRACTICES
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****
A support tool to enable person-centred care
'This is me' can be used to record details about a person who can't easily share information about themselves. For example, it can be used to record:
- a person’s cultural and family background
- important events, people and places from their life
- their preferences and routines.
For example, Henry takes two sugars in his tea or Margaret is a vegetarian but hates eating mushrooms or, shiny floors make Mary anxious as she thinks the floor is wet.
The leaflet can be used in any setting – at home, in hospital, in respite care or in a care home.
'This is me' helps health and social care professionals better understand who the person really is, which can help them deliver care that is tailored to the person's needs.
It can therefore help to reduce distress for people with dementia and their carers. It can also help to overcome problems with communication, and prevent more serious conditions such as malnutrition and dehydration.
'It is a brilliant, simple product which I highly recommend.'
- Carer of a person living with dementia
Now in its fourth edition, 'This is me' has been endorsed by the Royal College of Nursing since 2010. The latest edition includes changes that were suggested by people living with dementia, carers and health and social care professionals.
After downloading the leaflet, you can either print it out and fill it in by hand, or save the file to a device and complete it electronically.
