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!


For those patients unable to attend the Open Day, we would still love to hear your opinions on the merger and invite you to share them with us via an online survey we have created.

Chaperones

CHAPERONES

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed or a procedure may be required by a clinician which might involve intimate examinations.

Markyate Surgery is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the doctor or nurse.

It may not be possible for such a chaperone to be provided immediately and you might have to return for the examination to be carried out at a mutually convenient time.

Trust is important in the relationship between our clinicians and patients and we would, at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require it.
