Noticeboard

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.


In Times of Bereavement

The loss of someone close to you...

Bereavement will affect most of us at some point in our lives. The death of a loved one can be a devastating event. Bereavement affects people in different ways and there is no right or wrong way to feel. You may feel a lot of emotions at once, or feel that you have had a good day, or that you just can't cope. Powerful feelings can come unexpectedly and are natural reactions to the loss of a loved one. We hope this page wiill help you to deal with the formal arrangements in dealing with a death. We have also added some links to organisations that may be able to help you.

 

1. Telephone the doctor who will visit to confirm that death has taken place.

  1. Contact a funeral director.
  2. Arrange to collect the doctor's Medical Certificate of Death (usually from the surgery).
  3. Take this to the Registrars Office, (together with the deceased's Medical Card and Birth Certificate, if available) for the area in which the death took place. Alternatively you can register by declaration at any convenient Registrars Office but certificates will not be available as these will have to be posted to you a few days later.
  4. The Registrar will normally issue a Green coloured certificate for you to give to your funeral director who will look after necessary arrangements for the funeral. The Registrar will also issue a white notification certificate for the DSS. They will also enquire as to the number of Certified Copies you require for dealing with the deceased finances (a fee is payable for each copy).

If The Death Occurs In Hospital

  1. Contact a funeral director to inform him his services are required.
  2. Collect the certificate from the hospital then follow 4 - 5 as above

Note For Cremation

Your funeral director will usually liaise directly with the surgery regarding the additional certification required.
