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.


Telephone Consultations and Advice

For many problems you may not need to have the inconvenience of coming to the surgery, but alternatively can arrange a telephone consultation with the doctor form the comfort of your home or office. You will be advised of an approximate time when the doctor will call you back. All telephone consultations will be dealt with within 24 hours

Telephone consultations can be used, for example, for:

  • advice on minor illness
  • discussion on results of tests or recent hospital appointments
  • many medication reviews
  • queries on medication

In addition, the doctor may ask you to book a telephone consultation for a follow up after a face to face consultation.

We hope that you find telephone consultations a helpful way to access your doctor.

If you are unsure whether you need to see or talk to a doctor, our practice nurses are available for telephone advice .
