Welcome to Lyngford Park Surgery

Welcome to our new Lyngford Park Surgery website!

Lyngford Park Surgery serves the population of North Taunton as well as its 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 Thursday 23rd June 2022 between 13:00 and 16:00 for staff training.

To the patients of Dr John Edwards
I will be retiring from the practice on 1st July 2022. It has been a great privilege to work with such a dedicated and motivated team for the last 15 years. I will not be stopping clinical work entirely, and will be doing occasional locum sessions for the practice as needed. I shall be handing over the care of my patients to Dr Jay Wittram, who is currently working in the practice as a GP Registrar and will become a permanent member of the team on 8th September 2022.
With my very best wishes, Dr John Edwards
