Welcome to Langport Surgery

Stop Press:

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.
