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!

patient surveyWe would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we are setting up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.
