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.
