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!


New Patient Registration

 You will not be registered with a named doctor but registered with the practice, you may choose to see any of the doctors/Nurse at the Surgery.

New patients moving into the area may register by visiting the surgery. We have a large catchment area, we accept patients from Markyate, Flamstead, Studham, Redbourn, Dunstable, Caddington,Slip End, Gaddesden Row and Kensworth.

The receptionist will provide a new patient questionnaire and registration form. Please return  the completed form to the reception, along  with proof of identification, which could include a driving licence or a passport and a utility bill of your current  place of residence, without which you will not be able to register.

If you would like online access  to send us your repeat prescription request or book an appointment with a doctor or a nurse, please ask for your online password at reception.

We would recommend that patients aged 75 years and  over should annually be checked by the nurse.

All New Patients who are registered at Markyate Surgery will be offered a full Health Check  that will be undertaken by the nurse or the HealthCare Assistant.
