Extended Access

Branston Surgery is part of the South Lincoln Healthcare Federation which is pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends across its Practices.

The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.

The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods

Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments only.

For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.

The service is being delivered by a collaboration of GP practices in the area. If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they may need to travel to another local GP practice or a central GP practice hub and may not necessarily see their own GP.

In our Federation which includes Washingborough Surgery, Bassingham Surgery, Navenby Surgery, Brant Road Surgery, Church Walk Surgery - Metheringham & the Heath Surgery the appointments will be available between 6.30 pm to 8pm – Monday to Friday and 9am to 10am on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Branston surgery is undertaking one hour on 2 Sundays a month.

To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to the practice receptionist.

When We Are Closed

When the surgery is closed emergency medical cover is provided by the Out of Hours Service:

Please call 111

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

On the third Tuesday of each month all surgeries in the Lincolnshire West CCG area will be closed in the afternoon to allow for GP and staff training. The local CCG will provide cover for these afternoons.

NHS 111
