A message from Dr Claire Laband

I have now retired after a year of sick leave having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2020.

I joined Cheddar Medical Centre in July 2001 and the twenty years since then have been the happiest of my professional life. The whole practice shares the ethos of continuity of care and accessibility which is good for patients and what makes the job so satisfying.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagHome visits are time consuming and have to be only for housebound patients or those too ill to come to the surgery.

If you need a home visit please try to ring before 11.00a.m. We appreciate that this may not always be possible but phoning early helps the doctors plan their day.

Please accept that our reception team WILL ask for information regarding the nature of the request to enable us to inform the GP and to safely manage patient priorities. Our GPs require this and you must be prepared to provide this information. Be assured that our entire team are governed by confidentiality agreements.
