What the changes mean for you


Roe Lane patients

Your practice services
You will continue to receive all the services you would normally expect to receive from your practice but they will be provided from Christiana Hartley instead. This means:

  • You will still be offered a face-to-face appointment if you are assessed as needing to be seen in person
  • You will still be able to access services online if you choose
  • You will still be offered a home visit if you need one
  • You can still get your medication delivered to your nominated pharmacy
  • You can still call your practice’s usual telephone number


  • Familiar practice staff from Roe Lane are part of the bigger single team providing services for you now and into the future

Getting to Christiana Hartley
The distance between the two practices is around 1.5 miles, about a 5 minute drive by car. There is a small car park at Christiana Hartley with disabled spaces and additional on street parking is available.

The map below shows travel times by bus to Christiana Hartley.

Each colour represents the average length of time it takes to travel to the practice from different places on the map. Travel times include any walking needed as part of the journey, such as from an address to the bus stop, or from a bus stop to the surgery.

There are areas on the map without a colour. This is because it would take longer than 45 minutes to travel to the practice by bus from these areas, or because they are further than 400 metres from a bus stop that serves Christiana Hartley. The map also shows bus routes that directly serve Christiana Hartley, which are:
• 44
• 300
• 375
• 385

The travel times on the map also take into account journeys that may be used to get to Christiana Hartley but would involve changing buses to one of the above routes part way through the trip. These additional bus routes are not shown.

Existing Christiana Hartley patients
You will not see any changes to the services they receive as a result of the merger. You will however benefit from the two practice teams coming together, meaning additional staff and greater resilience to cover appointments and provide care.
