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.

Why Choose Well?

Choosing well means:

  • Spending less time waiting for treatment
  • Getting the best treatment for your symptoms
  • Freeing up the emergency department (A&E) to treat those with the most serious illnesses or injuries

Over a quarter of people who visit the emergency department could be treated by another NHS service.  Make sure you use the right service for your symptoms by checking the Choose Well Guide.
