Dr John Westlake retirement

We would like to inform our patients that Dr John Westlake will be retiring from Roath House Surgery at the end of June after joining the practice in May 1994.
Dr Westlake was senior partner and also a trainer for doctors who wished to become a GP. He will be greatly missed by everyone at the practice and of course his patients and peers.
We would like to wish Dr Westlake a very happy and healthy retirement.

If you have a new or continuous cough and/or fever then you need to self-isolate for 7 days and manage symptoms at home. If you are concerned you are seriously unwell then please RING 111 FOR ADVICE.


If you have a pre-booked GP/Nurse appointment already, we may call you to change this appointment to a telephone appointment.

Are you or anyone you know a veteran? Please follow the link below for useful information.

Primary Care Mental Health Liaison

The Primary Care Mental Health Liaison service based within your GP practice is still working and ready to help GPs and their patients find solutions for mental health problems. We know that getting through on the phone can sometimes be difficult, so if you want us to book you an appointment for a call back from a mental health practitioner, then please email and we will be happy to book you in.

You will be asked for your name, date of birth and address and preferred telephone number, as well as the name of your usual surgery and a brief account of the nature of your problem (e.g. anxiety) . We need this information from you to make sure that we can link in properly with your GP. This is a secure email address and any case notes will be entered into your usual GP case notes. Your email address will not be stored or used for any other purpose.

Telephone helpline for families needing Health Visitor advice during COVID

We recognise that families will be anxious during the current COVID-19 pandemic and therefore we are ensuring that access to HV advice is readily available for all our families during this period.

The telephone numbers are:
