Dr Anne-Marie Spooner
I am a local Chesterfield GP and have worked in the area for over 20 years. My roles include being a part time GP partner at Inspire Health as well as having worked as a clinical lead for Derby and Derbyshire CCG and Chesterfield and Dronfield Primary Care Network.
During this time I have also been a keen dancer in my free time. I am passionate about the multiple physical and mental health benefits of dance, for everyone, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to be involved in Dancing for Health.
My roles include helping shape health services in our local area, especially for people with learning difficulties and the frail and elderly, both in their own home and in care homes. Providing the opportunity for these groups of people, who traditionally may not have had access to the wonderful experience of dance, to enjoy the well proven benefits of dance is exciting! In particular, the personalised, accessible, and adapted approach to dancing that allows everyone to participate at their own level is to be celebrated.
