Derbyshire GP who helped thousands of people dies from the same disease she treated

She appeared in four episodes of the BBC documentary series “The Real Peak Practice”.

The programs followed the primary care team at Baslow Health Center in Bakewell as they supported one of England’s oldest patient populations.

At first, Dr. Jordan attributed her slurred speech to a heavy workload during the coronavirus pandemic.

But in 2021, a neurologist gave her the news she feared.

She was diagnosed with primary lateral sclerosis, a rare form of ALS.

After working as a general practitioner for 25 years, she retired from general practice in May 2022.

“Speaking, discussing, reflecting, explaining and chatting were my life’s work,” she later wrote.

“My career has prioritized end-of-life care.

“As a GP, I am absolutely committed to my patients and have traveled extensively with people with ALS.

“I’m now on the other side of the coin.”
