Message from Dr Matt Brooks

I wanted to let you know about an upcoming change in my role at Newbridge Surgery.

From April 10th 2020 I will be stepping down as a partner and becoming a salaried GP at the surgery. As a result, I will no longer be directly involved in the management, decision making and planning at the surgery, which will continue in the very capable hands of Dr Lawrie Frere and Dr Kathryn Boyd.

This role change will not affect my work as a GP here, which will remain on the same days as I currently do (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday).

I will be taking a week of leave between roles and I look forward to continuing my work here from April 20th 2020.
