Martin Nicholas

I have been a partner at Leckhampton since 1988, and a trainer since 1992. I also deliver courses for the Severn Deanery to their teaching faculty, and have been involved with assessing underperforming doctors. I have a strong belief in using education as a tool for change and quality improvement and have used it effectively to overcome barriers to progress in several spheres. Outside interests include smallholding, school governor and outdoor pursuits.

Olesya Atkinson, GP Partner at Berkley Place Surgery and Trustee

I relocated to the beautiful Gloucestershire from Nottingham in 2012 where I worked as a Salaried GP and Clinical Lecturer at the University of Nottingham. I found to be an excellent way to get to know the local consultants and GP colleagues as well as giving me access to high quality education. I was GGPET Secretary from 2013-2015 and now remain as a Committee member. I work as a GP Partner at Berkeley Place Surgery in Cheltenham and I am also one of the Training Programme Directors (TPD) for Gloucestershire VTS.
