REGISTERING WITH MOCKETTS WOOD SURGERY - We are currently not accepting new registrations.
Dear Prospective Patient
Unfortunately we are not able to accept your request to register with the Surgery today.
We currently care for 9150 patients. We believe this is the maximum number of patients we can treat and not compromise the quality of the care we can safely deliver to those patients. Due to the number of patients moving into the area and the need for GP registration increasing, we have had to change the way we review the availability of appointments.
THE NEXT REGISTRATION REVIEW DATE AND CURRENT STATUS HAS BEEN NOTED BELOW AS WELL AS AN INTERACTIVE MAP WHICH HAS BEEN PROVIDED TO SHOW OUR CATCHMENT AREA FOR REGISTRATIONS.
We review our list size on the last Friday of every month and details noted below. If our list has fallen below the 9150 patients we will accept applications on a first come first serve basis, from patients who wish to register with us.
STATUS OF CURRENT REGISTRATION AVAILABILITY .........................
We are currently unable to accept any further registrations for this month 25/8/2023
Therefore please check website notice on Friday 29th September 2023 for further updates.
Please note, we are unable to hold a waiting list. Applications can be made either online or by picking up a registration pack in reception when the registrations are open.
The contract we have with the NHS asks us to provide patients with a reason we have rejected their registration. Please accept this letter as our written explanation to you.
If you are having difficulties in registering with a practice in the area, then please contact the Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group Primary care Team, they will be able to assist you with registering with a GP practice:

Temporary Patient Registrations
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.
