Dr Sarah Milner
Dr Sarah Milner trained at Nottingham Medical School and subsequently the Chesterfield GP Vocational Training Scheme.
Having been a GP partner at the Ripley Medical Centre for 15 years, she became a salaried GP for Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust when the practice merged with DCHS in 2016.
Dr Milner has been involved with medical education in the practice since 2005 for medical students, GP trainees and a variety of allied health professionals, and was pleased to join the team of Programme Directors for the Derby GP Training Scheme in 2017.
As an early trend setter of having children during training, she has juggled family life and work for many years, and therefore has a bit of a soft spot for flexible trainees.
