If you are entering the surgery we are now asking that patients wear a face covering please.
Face coverings will be compulsory in a lot of areas now - however there are exemptions to this - children under 11, lip readers for deaf people, patients with a learning disability or have severe breathing problems.
Please look at the document below to print off a card to show why you are not wearing a face covering on public transport.
Lincolnshire Fire & Rescue
As we enter into Winter and with Covid restrictions we are spending more time at home.
Please read the attached booklet from Lincolnshire Fire & Recue about protecting you, your family and house from fire.
Welcome to Branston & Heighington Family Practice
Welcome to Branston & Heighington Family Practice. We are a friendly family practice serving the healthcare needs of our 6000 patients from the surrounding villages.
We are owned by Dr Mahalingam who is the sole contract holder for the Health Contract we have with NHS England.
We are also members of NHS Lincolnshire CCG, Lincoln South Federation and the Lincoln South Primary Care Networks.
The Practice has been established in the village for over 30 years in our purpose built surgery. The surgery unfortunately does not have its own car park but the Co-op next door allow patients to park there.
We have disabled access to the surgery and a disabled patient toilet.
We hope that this website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. If there is anything wrong with the website or you have suggestions for improvements then please contact the Practice on - firstname.lastname@example.org
Our team of Clinicians and Administration have a philosophy of ensuring that our Patients receive the best healthcare we can provide with the resources available to us.
We are continually expanding our practice and strive to provide excellent healthcare, whilst meeting the needs of each individual patient.
We are committed to innovating and developing our service to meet these specific goals.

COVID TRIAGE & COVID LETTER REQUESTS
The Practice is now ringing patients the day before their face to face appointment with any of our Practice Nurses or Phlebotomist to ascertain if they have any signs or symptoms of Covid.
We will be asking the questions with regards to if you have a high temperature, new cough or have lost your sense of taste or smell. We will also be asking if you have been asked to isolate by NHS Track and Trace or you have booked a Covid test.
If you answer yes to any of the questions then we will ask you to stay away from the surgery unless your test was negative.
When you arrive at the surgery for your appointment we will ask if there has been any change since we spoke to you before allowing you entry to the surgery.
These measures have been brought in to help protect staff and patients in these difficult times.
The surgery will be open during the latest lockdown as were all GP surgeries in the last Lockdown.
We are politely asking patients not to call the surgery requesting letters from the GPs advising them to shield or to request a letter stating that they have to work from home or not to go to work or to say that children should be kept off school.
The guidance is that people are not being asked to resume shielding and schools are to remain open.
So any requests of this nature will be immediately refused.
Thank you for you understanding.
