Take a ferry from Koh Phangan straight to Surat Thani (about 2,5 hours to Donsak pier - first one leaves at 7:00 am but there's one at least 4 times a day), then take a bus from Surat to Phuket (about 6 hours). You can book combi-tickets for the ferry and bus at almost every travel agent at Phangan, or just buy a ticket at the bus. Depending on what time of year you're going, I don't think it's necessary to book ahead. I've just come back from Phangan last weekend and it is very, very quiet right now.
Thanks! Can this be done overnight or would i have to spend a day getting there?

If you get the 7am or 11am ferry you can do it in a day. If you get a later ferry you will miss the last bus and will have to spend a night in Surat Thani .
If you want to do it overnight get the night ferry at 10pm. It will arrive in Surat Thani around 4am. Then you will have to hang around for a couple of hours waiting for the first bus to Phuket.
