New Patients

We are currently accepting new patients only if they have moved into our catchment area and have no registered GP near to their home.

If this applies to you please call the surgery to receive further guidance on the process to follow.

Please see the map below to see if you are within our catchment area.

The boundary rules are laid down by NHS England and we are unable to make any exceptions for people living outside the boundary.

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home and staying at an address within our practice area you can receive treatment at this practice as a temporary resident. 

You can be registered on this basis for up to three months. This will allow you to be on our list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. If you expect to be resident in our area for more than three months you should register with us as a full patient. Please note this will mean that your registration with your current GP surgery will end and your full medical history will be transferred to us.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact us to tell us why you need to be seen by a doctor.

You will need to complete a temporary resident form before we can book you an appointment. You can save time by downloading the form below and completing it before you come to the practice.

Patients Living Abroad

Patients who are living or working abroad are unable to be registered at Ainsdale Medical Centre unless they become unwell and need to see a health care professional when they are staying in the area. In this situation you would need to be registered as a temporary patient with the practice. We are unable to provide routine healthcare to patients living abroad. This includes vaccinations, cervical screening, annual checks and contraceptive advice.
