We have 2 named and very experienced trainers (Dr Tony Fleischman and Dr Sheena Sharma) both of whom who have masters level qualifications in medical education. All the GPs at Bartlemas however enjoy training and our trainees benefit from the wealth of experience and diverse interests of our team. Dr Sarah Turner is involved with mentoring medical students. Many of our current GPs have also trained at Bartlemas and we feel proud that so many of our trainees want to join the team permanently.
