Due to the continuing government guidelines concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to consider our surgery staff at this dificult time. We have decided the following actions are necessary:
These are clearly unprecedented times that most of us have never seen in our lifetime. Please take care and be safe.

Chair, Friends of Langport Surgery
Friends of Langport Surgery (FoLS) is a member of the national association of patient participation groups.
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.

Would you like to have your say about the services provided at Langport Surgery but don't have the time to come to our meetings? Then you may like to join our Virtual Patient Participation Group and help us shape the future.
See more information about the Virtual Patient Participation Group.
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? See the application form and rules or collect one from the waiting room. Once we have your completed form you will be contacted by a member of the FoLS
