Dr Mark Bish
Senior Partner
Dr Bish, our senior partner, trained at St George’s hospital in London. After qualifying he worked for 5 years in hospital medicine around SW London and Surrey. He gained experience in multiple medical specialties including gastroenterology, neurology and endocrinology before training to be a GP in 2008. He started as a partner at a Wimbledon GP practice, before moving to the Hart in 2013.

Dr Bish is married to Dr Worth, with two children who are growing up fast. He loves all sport and was a keen gymnast in his childhood which remains useful for the occasional party-trick.

Dr Will Hearsey
GP Partner
Dr Hearsey is one of our GP Partners. He joined the Hart surgery team in 2015 and has an interest in most areas of medicine. This allows him to find a lot to write about in his fortnightly columns for the Henley Standard. He has training in dermoscopy and joint injections and looks after Lashbrook nursing home where he does a ward round every week. Outside the surgery he is an avid reader. He enjoys playing and recording music and has recently bought himself a trail cam with which he captures footage of all manner of woodland creatures! He is also the founder of One Week, a community movement that aims to co-ordinate large numbers of people in small sacrifices to create big rewards. Most recently this was focused on saving energy. He lives in Wokingham with his partner Rachel and their Corgi, Bowie.

Formerly senior partner, he has stepped back from a management role but still provides regular locum, GP care as well as being one of our leads on minor surgery which he has a keen interest in.  Dr Unwin is also the Hart Surgery’s learning disability and autism champion and he has a real heart for these patients and their support network.

5 years later and with the arrival of 2 children she was lucky enough to complete her GP training with the Hart Surgery. She was delighted to be offered a job to stay on as a salaried doctor.

Over the course of her training, she has worked in a number of hospital specialties including obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics, acute medicine and elderly care. Her interests include women’s health, general medicine and palliative care. She also looks after patients at Chilterns Court Care Home.
