Sarah Rodgers (temp)
Care Coordinator
The Care Co-ordinator is part of the Community Support Team employed by Derbyshire Community Health Services and is usually based at Alvaston Medical Centre, Boulton Lane.
They provide a free service to anyone over the age of 18 to help support and act on your behalf as the link between all the different services and organisations in the community.
If you are an older adult the Care Co-ordinator can help you get the support you need to remain independent in your own home for as long as possible.
If you are a family member or carer of someone and you also feel you need some extra help, support or information - they can help with that too. They can also help you access local support and volunteer groups.

Foundation Year Doctors & Medical Students

Foundation Year Doctors & Medical Students


AMC is a training practice, therefore we regularly undertake placements for Foundation Doctors & Medical Students.
Foundation Doctors, also known as F2's, are all fully qualified Doctors who are working within the General Practice environment as part of their post qualification development and to help them decide on which area of medicine they would like to focus their career. Many do go on to become GP's in their own right. All our F2's have access to a mentor, one of our Partner GP's every day and are always supported as they undertake their own surgery time with our patients.
We also support current medical students placements. You will be notified if a student is present with the GP or Nurse you are seeing and you may choose to ask for them to be excluded from your consultation if you would prefer. Please just let the receptionist, Nurse or your GP know.
