Noticeboard

It’s been a little over a month since Rothschild House and Markyate surgeries merged.  We are so pleased to be working with the local community in Markyate and would like to thank everyone for being patient with us during this transition.


Many thanks to those of you who attended our Open Day on Saturday 8th July; it was a fantastic day. We got the opportunity to meet over ninety of our patients, offer them health checks and answer their questions.


The two most commonly asked questions were:



  1. Whether patients would have a named doctor

  2. and

  3. What the plan is for new premises


The named doctor for all patients registered at Markyate surgery will be Dr Choudhury.  Dr Ravichander and one other, soon to be appointed doctor will also be covering the surgery.


Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Dr Walters who retires in August, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Walters for her invaluable service to the community, her kind assistance during the transition period and wish her a thoroughly enjoyable retirement. 


Unfortunately, the building previously designated for the new premises has been found to be unacceptable.  We are actively trying to secure new premises for the surgery and remain in regular contact with Dacorum Borough Council and NHS England in regards to this. We’re hoping to have news for you regarding premises very soon – watch this space!


Telephone Consultations and Advice

For many problems you may not need to have the inconvenience of coming to the surgery, but alternatively can arrange a telephone consultation with the doctor form the comfort of your home or office. You will be advised of an approximate time when the doctor will call you back. All telephone consultations will be dealt with within 24 hours

Telephone consultations can be used, for example, for:

  • advice on minor illness
  • discussion on results of tests or recent hospital appointments
  • many medication reviews
  • queries on medication

In addition, the doctor may ask you to book a telephone consultation for a follow up after a face to face consultation.

We hope that you find telephone consultations a helpful way to access your doctor.

If you are unsure whether you need to see or talk to a doctor, our practice nurses are available for telephone advice .
