Friends of Langport Surgery (FoLS) is a member of the national association of patient participation groups.
What is a Patient Participation Group?
As a patient of Langport Surgery you can have a view on the things that matter in your health service. Langport Surgery’s patient participation group is a selection of patients and practice staff who meet at regular intervals to decide ways of making a positive contribution to the services and facilities offered by the practice to the patients. They provide 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 automated surgery doors and monthly magazine subscription for the waiting room. Most recently they purchased the new Carers and Community Board in the waiting room and a new wheelchair for use by patients when visiting the surgery.

Langport Surgery Car Park Opening
Langport Surgery celebrated the opening of the new car park extension by planting a magnolia tree in memory of Margaret Astridge. Margaret was an active member of the Friends of Langport Surgery group who sadly passed away in 2012. Margaret left a donation to the surgery which was used to carry out the works on the surgery car park for the benefit of all patients.
