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.

Staying healthy
You can help yourself stay fit and healthy by:


Colds and flu
If you are over 65 years old, pregnant, or have a long-term health condition, like asthma or diabetes, you can have a free flu jab. www.nhs.uk/flu

If you have a cold don't ask your GP for antibiotics.  They don't cure colds and flu. www.nhs.uk/antibiotics

Keep Warm Keep Well
One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm.  Get a free copy of the 'Keep Warm Keep Well' advice leaflet from www.gov.uk

Stomach bugs
If you have sickness and diarrhoea don't spread it to others by visiting your local hospital.  Drink plenty of water and telephone your GP surgery if you have any concerns.  www.nhs.uk/novovirus
