Patient Online Access Issues- Important

Please be aware that if you use the Patient Access service to order medication there has been an update which is causing issues:

Please use the user number to log in and DO NOT create a log in using your email address as this is causing problems if we don't have your email address in our clinical system. 

The new Patient Access website provides the option to nominate a pharmacy when ordering medication. Unfortunately it is not possible to nominate our dispensary as your preferred choice; however there is an option to skip the nomination, which will allow you to continue placing your request.

Patients who use our dispensary do not need to nominate a pharmacy. We have fed back to the provider of the website to let them know that this is causing our patients problems and we hope that they will take action to resolve this issue.

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 fund raise 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 complete and return the application form to Langport Surgery and a member of the FoLS will contact you. Click here for an Application form and Rules.

 

Improved Access - evening and weekend appointments

This is a new initiative across Somerset whereby patients can make appointments at extended times (up until 8pm at night Monday-Friday and on Saturday mornings) at other practices across the local area. Practices working together to deliver extended access to appointments in this local area are:Springmead, Tawstock, Essex House, Church View, The Meadows, Summervale and West One.

Appointment types will vary, some being face to face and some on the 'phone and there will be a mixture of pre-bookable and same day appointments available across the week. They may be with a doctor but could also be with another healthcare professional such as a primary care practitioner or a nurse. We are keen to balance the importance of continuity of care with convenient access for patients whilst ensuring that the service is safe.

To book an evening or weekend appointment please contact your registered practice during normal opening times, this will help us to signpost you to the most appropriate option for your particular problem. By contacting us we can fully explain the process, ensure that the booking is appropriate and cover all the relevant information and consent that we need to before we book an appointment for you.

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.
