Merger with Berkhamsted Group Practice

We are pleased to announce that our merger with Berkhamsted Group Practice took place on 1st January 2020.

We believe this merger offers important patient benefits as the combination of our strengths will enhance our team and enable us to further improve patient experience by extending the range of services we are able to deliver.

Whilst there are some changes and some doctors will be working at a different site we are committed to making the process of integrating the practices as seamless as possible.

Dr Theo Sacca and Dr Kate Thomson will work solely at Berkhamsted Surgery, and Dr Avi Gupta will no longer work at Markyate Surgery. As part of these changes, we have taken the opportunity to rationalise doctors lists so that each doctor has the correct number of patients allocated to them; this allocation is done randomly.

The same system of every patient having a named doctor will continue and the number of appointments we offer will not change, in fact, we feel these changes will make it easier to see your named doctor. We will be writing to each patient affected by these changes to inform them of their new doctor.
