Dr Claire Laband Sadly our GP Dr Claire Laband has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She has been a much loved GP partner at Cheddar Medical Centre for many years, and was already planning to retire later in 2021. She has now had to leave her clinical work abruptly in order to undergo treatment. For those patients who would like to pass on their good wishes to Dr Laband, please send emails to Cheddarmc.chedmed@nhs.net with the subject "Claire Laband Retirement".
