Outputting external php into Silverstripe

I have a php script which goes to database created by SilverStripe, f.e.:


// database info

$query ="SELECT * FROM StaffPage WHERE `lastname` LIKE '$_POST[last_name]%'"; 

$result = mysql_query($query) or die("Could not execute query");
if (mysql_num_rows($result)==0 ) {print("Not found "); return;

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
echo $row[lastname].", ".$row[lfirstname];

Now I want to put on some page form which is 

<form action='./dosearch.php'>
<input type='text' name='last_name'>
<input type='submit'>

I surely can do it via iframes but it has its drawbacks. What is the recommended approach? How to accommodate/modify such script

Thank you in advance. Victor
