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:
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!
When you visit the surgery for the first time you will be asked to fill out and sign a pre-registration form , Kindly bring some form of I.D, Passport and a utility bill not less than 3 months old .
When you register you will also be asked to fill out a new patient health questionnaire. This is because it can take a considerable time for us to receive your medical records from your previous GP Surgery.
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.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. It covers issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
We accept patients from Markyate, Flamstead, Studham, Redbourn, Dunstable, Caddington, Slip End, Gaddesden Row and Kensworth.
