Margate and Mocketts Wood PCN (Primary Care Network)

 1st June 2021

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with the following:

  • long term conditions
  • suffer from mental health issues
  • may require further input from social prescribing
  • may need to access their local health services more often

In order to meet these needs and to support our patients in the best way possible, GP practices are now working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as primary care networks (PCNs) who support each other, although all Surgeries still remain independent.

Mocketts Wood Surgery is proud to be part of the Margate & Mocketts Wood PCN which consists of four GP surgeries, namely:

Bethesda Medical Centre

The Limes Surgery

Northdown Surgery

Mocketts Wood Surgery
