Cameras from BBC East Midlands have spent a year following the doctors, nurses and patients at Baslow Health Centre near Chatsworth in Derbyshire.
The Peak Park has one of the oldest patient populations in the country.
Almost one in three of the patients at Baslow is over 65.
The team pride themselves on providing bespoke joined up care, keeping their patients at home and out of hospital.
