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.


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 Tehmton Sepai 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.
