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****

 

 

 

Private Fees & Charges

*Please Note*: The way in which patients can access their medical records has changed since the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) have come into force. To see our new patient information leaflet surrounding this, please click here.

It is important to understand that many GP's are not employed by the NHS.

They are self employed and they have to cover their costs - staff, buildings, heating, lighting etc. - in the same way as any small business.

The Government's contract with GP's covers medical services to NHS patients, including the provision of on-going medical treatment. In recent years however, more and more organisations have been involving doctors in a whole range of non-medical work. Sometimes the only reason that GP's are asked is because they are in a position of trust in the community or because an insurance company or employer wants to ensure that information provided to them is true and accurate.

With certain limited exceptions, for example a GP confirming that one of their patients is not fit for jury service, GP's do not have to carry out non-NHS work on behalf of their patients. Whilst GP's will always attempt to assist their patients with the completion of forms, they are not required to do so.

The British Medical Association have suggested fees that GP's may charge their patients for non-NHS work (i.e work not covered under their contract with the NHS) in order to help GP's set their own professional fees. However, the fees suggested by the BMA are for guidance only; they are not recommendations and a doctor is not obliged to charge the rates suggested.

Please give us as much notice as you can of your requirement for a medical examination or report. Please be precise with your appointment and bring in any relevant documentation into the surgery or with you should you require an examination.
