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 her retirement from later in 2021. She has now had to leave her clinical work abruptly in order to undergo treatment for pancreatic cancer. 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". We will ensure these good wishes are passed on to her.

 CQC Inspection 2019We are delighted to announce that we were inspected by the Care Quality Commission in October and have been graded as "Good" full details of the inspection report can be found here.


Prescription Requests - From 1st September 2019 there will be changes to the way we handle some prescription requests. Please see our Repeat Prescriptions page for more information. 


Our PPG is made up both with patients who attend the quarterly meetings in the Medical Centre and patients who communicate with the Practice via email (our virtual PPG).

We find it valuable to be able to communicate with as many patients as possible and recognise that not all patients are able to attend meetings in the evening.

Should any patient wish to receive electronic updates from PPG including minutes of the meetings and updates on current work streams please contact Pauline Drummond, Practice Manager in the first instance. Her email address is:

pauline.drummond1@nhs.net

Many thanks.
