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:
- Whether patients would have a named doctor
- 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.
