COVID-19 Vaccination Information

From week commencing 15th March 2021 all COVID-19 vaccines will now be delivered at the Thanet (SAGA) Hub on the Haine Road.

The surgery team will be working alongside other practices at this central Hub to vaccinate the remaining groups and to deliver the second doses for all patients previously vaccinated at The St Peters Community Halls.

The Thanet hub has adequate parking facilities and will be easy for patients to book and attend, also more efficient for us to deliver the vaccines.

Stage Coach will be offering a free hopper bus service from the Westwood Cross bus stop behind Debenhams every 15 minutes to the vaccination hub.

We will be using an electronic booking system so if you receive a text from your GP Practice with the Hub address, please respond and book your vaccination.

We ask you to follow the instructions in the text to book or cancel appointments and not to contact the surgery to confirm details.

For those patients without a mobile phone the surgery will contact you to book second doses but it would help us greatly if as many people as possible use the electronic booking system to speed up the booking process.

Walk-In Clinics Cancelled

To support the efforts to minimise the spread of coronavirus Mocketts Wood Surgery has made the decision to temporarily suspend WALK-IN Clinics from the 16th March 2020 until further notice.
This may put pressure on the telephone lines at the practice so please be patient. You may use online services to contact the practice - this is a way of sending a query electronically. We will be enabling video consultations from the 16th March 2020 with the doctors.*
The practice will review and advise you about the most appropriate course of action for your needs. This can be accessed via online services via the patient access App.
We are sorry for the inconvenience. 

* Video consultations will be completed via secure link where the patient will receive a text message, once clicked on the doctors will be in touch shortly after.
