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.

Accountable/Named GP



From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.




This is purely an administrative exercise in order that patients can have a named responsible GP should they require them.




For convenience your named accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with. Dr Romit Choudhury is the named GP for all patients at Markyate Surgery.




Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.




If you need input from a variety of health professionals, you can discuss these with any of the other doctors.




Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
