We are pleased to announce the merger of Rothschild House Surgery and Markyate Surgery effective from 31st May 2017.

We believe this merger offers important patient benefits combining our strengths, enhancing our team and enabling us to further enhance patient experience. Whilst this merger obviously signifies change, we are committed to making the process of integrating the two practices seamless to you.

What does this mean for patients of Markyate Surgery?

Between now and the 31st of May the service provided to patients at Markyate Surgery will not change. After the 31st of May the Doctors providing surgeries will change. It is the intention for a regular Doctor from Rothschild House Surgery to provide surgeries at Markyate to replace those provided by Dr Sepai. Dr Walter’s surgeries at Markyate will not change. The existing services and staff at Markyate will continue as before. Dr Sepai will leave after 21 years, to pursue new ventures from June 2017. Rothschild House Surgery intends to extend additional services currently provided at Tring to Markyate patients in due course. The philosophy of Rothschild House Surgery is to provide personal care close to home from a consistent clinical team focused on continuity of care and this philosophy will be extended to Markyate. There are no current plans to change the catchment area for Markyate Surgery.

What about the surgery premises?

Rothschild House Surgery is aware of the history and current situation with regard to the Markyate Surgery premises and the need to improve these in the future. There are on-going negotiations with NHS England, Herts Valleys CCG and Dacorum Borough Council to develop new premises that Rothschild House Surgery has been involved in and is committed and determined to see this development happen for the benefit of patients.

What will happen next?

As any developments are made over the next few months Rothschild House Surgery and Markyate Surgery will keep patients informed of these.

General Ante-natal Clinic--WEDNESDAYS  

pregnant11The Midwife routinely sees expectant mothers between 2pm and 4pm  every Wednesday. If you are pregnant for the first time, or have had problems during previous pregnancies, please make an appointment with the doctor. 

Alternatively, if you have had normal pregnancies and are sure of your needs and the course of the pregnancy, the nurse can easily book you into the antenatal care system. 

Normally after your consultation at the surgery, a referral is made to the relevant midwife.

 For births in the Luton Dunstable Hospital, Mrs Theresa Bird will be your midwife.

For births in Watford Mrs Mc Craken will attend to you. The midwife will act on our referral on Wednesday when she arrives. Presently the first booking is performed by the midwife who will visit you at home

Cervical Cancer Screening  

Our female patients will receive a letter  from the Health Authority when they are due for a routine smear and asked to make an appointment with the practice nurse.  The screening is a relatively painless and simple, quick procedure carried out every three to five years, depending on age, or more frequently if clinically indicated. The results usually take between 4 to 6 weeks to be processed from the Laboratory.

Patients whose results are normal will receive a letter from the Health Authority and results which are abnormal will be dealt with by the Nurse or the doctor in the most appropriate way.

Some Patients are advised and reminded to have their smear if it is overdue.  The Surgery sends Reminder letters to these patients, we would appreciate patients to respond appropriately and attend for screening.
