Friends of Langport Surgery - Lucky Numbers Club

The Friends of Langport Surgery (FoLS) are a group of patients that support the surgery by; providing a voice for patient feedback, raise awareness on issues that affect the surgery and its patients, promote patient health education and fundraise for materials/events that benefit the patients of Langport Surgery.

Examples of these are the men’s health drop in evening, patient resuscitation educational session, the new automated surgery doors and monthly magazine subscription for the waiting room. FoLS current project is to buy a new piece of respiratory equipment.

The FoLS propose a monthly Lucky Numbers Club to provide a regular income to continue this important work as well as the chance to win cash prizes every month. This would be an annual subscription of £12.00 representing 12 monthly payments of £1.00 for one entry in the monthly draw. There will be no maximum so you can either have one entry or as many as you like.

Would you be interested in taking part in the proposed monthly Lucky Number Club? Please ask at reception for a entry form. If there is enough interest you will be contacted by a member of the FoLS.

Other News and Information

Help us make more of your local NHS - Don’t stockpile medicines
Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group supports any GP practice that decides to reduce their prescribing of medicines which have limited clinical value or are more suitable for patients to buy for themselves. For more information click here.

Named GP
Langport Surgery will ensure that there is a named accountable GP assigned to each patient. New patients will be allocated a GP at the time of registration.
Where patients express a preference for a particular GP the surgery will make every effort to accommodate this request. You may still choose to see any GP of your choice, as you currently do, even if they are not your named GP. If you would like to know who your named GP is please ask a member of our team.

Text Message Reminder Service
We have now launched our new text message appointment reminder service.  If you have registered a mobile contact number with us then you will now benefit from this service. You can also cancel the appointment via text message if you decide you don't need it.

We hope that this will reduce the amount of missed appointments.

If you would like to use this service and haven't already registered your mobile number with the surgery, please do so at reception.  If you would prefer not to receive reminders you can opt out by informing one of our reception team.

IMPORTANT - Tell us if you change your number or if your phone is lost or stolen.
