Have Your Say

Welcome to Lyngford Park Surgery

Lyngford Park Surgery serves the population of North Taunton as well as it's surrounding villages. We offer a full general practice service 5 days a week and specialist clinics are held for pregnant women and patients with long term conditions such as diabetes, asthma and coronary heart disease. We also undertake minor surgery, coil fittings and contraceptive implants. We have a team of clinicians, reception and administrative staff and we are approved by Health Education England as a training practice to provide specialist training to doctors.

Please note: The surgery will be CLOSED on Tuesday 11th January 2022 between 13:00 and 14:00 for staff training.

We politely ask that you do not contact the surgery regarding COVID-19 boosters. You will be contacted when it is your turn to receive the vaccine.

2021 Flu Clinics - we are now booking appointments for the 2021 flu clinics. Please contact our reception team on 01823 333355 to make your appointment, or enquire whether you are eligible. This year, all patients aged 50 and over by 31.03.2022 are eligible for a flu vaccine from September.


Large vaccination centres are offering walk-in clinics for 12-15 year olds, as well as opening up a significant number of bookable vaccination slots. This is in addition to the opportunity for children from 12-15 to be vaccinated at their schools.

You can find out which centres are offering walk-in clinics for 12-15 year olds on the "grab-a-jab" website.

You can also book vaccination appointments for 12-15 year olds through the National Booking Service website or by calling 119.

COVID-19 UPDATE - 19th July 2021

The highest priority for the NHS remains the safety of staff, patients and visitors.

While COVID restrictions will end in many settings in England from 19th July, everyone accessing or visiting healthcare settings must continue to wear a face covering (unless they are exempt) and follow social distancing rules.

Public Health England's infection prevention control guidelines and hospital visiting guidance are therefore set to remain in place for all staff and visitors across all health services, including hospitals, GP practices, dentists, optometrists and pharmacies, to ensure patients and staff are protected. 

Read the infection prevention control guidance in full at: COVID-19: infection prevention and control (IPC).

To continue to protect everyone, we must maintain safe infection control and minimise unnecessary physical contact. For further information on why GP practices are working differently, please see the following poster: GP practices working differently.

We also ask that you only attend the surgery in person if you have an appointment booked. All other queries can be dealt with via telephone: 01823 333355, or email:

Patient Group

If you're a patient at Lyngford Park Surgery, would you like to join our Patients' Group? It meets four times a year to talk about issues to do with the work of the Surgery. This is especially important at the moment, when so many people are worried about COVID, vaccinations, and if it's still ok to see a doctor. We'd like to hear from you, so contact


CCG Somerset Open Letter

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the COVID vaccination programme, our GPs have continued to care for people in Somerset providing you with face-to-face, telephone and online support. To read the Open Letter from Somerset CCG, please click here: Somerset CCG: Please support our GP practices

As lockdown eases, don't forget your highly qualified, local community pharmacist can provide health advice and over the counter products or help with a wider range of minor illnesses and injuries, like backache, bites, coughs and colds, sunburn, hay fever and diarrhoea. 

You don't need to wait for a GP appointment for minor conditions. Your local community pharmacist is on your doorstep when you need help and advice for treatment with a wide range of minor illnesses and injuries. You can get same day advice and over the counter medications.

Ask your pharmacist

For urgent care, or after our surgery has closed, call or click NHS 111 to be directed to the local healthcare you need.

111 First

Thank you for being patient. Now that lockdown is lifting, our surgery is experiencing very high numbers of patients trying to contact us. We are doing all we can to answer your queries as quickly as we can, but please be patient and understanding if it takes a while for us to answer the phone or for you to be seen for an appointment.

While face-to-face appointments continue to be offered to those based on clinical need - many issues can be resolved during a phone consultation without patients having to travel to the surgery. The practice team will direct you to the most appropriate healthcare team for your needs. #HelpUsHelpYou.

Help us focus on caring for you
