If you run out of medication in an emergency and we/the chemist are not open please contact 111.
If you are a dispensing patient (you live more than a mile away in a straight line from a local pharmacy) then you may obtain your medication from the dispensary at the Branston Surgery.
Patients for whom we do not dispense to may have their prescriptions sent to the local chemists at Branston or Washingborough on request. Please allow 48 hours or two working days between ordering and collection.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
Please note this fee is paid to the surgery but is then deducted from the payment made to the Practice from NHS England for supplying this service. Thus the Practice makes no money from charging for Prescriptions.
These following charges apply for Prescriptions if you are not exempt from paying Prescription charges. With effect from 1/4/21
- Prescription (per item): £9.35
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
