Dr Susan Cooper – Senior partner and CQC Registered Manager, BM 1982 SOUTHAMPTON DRCOG MRCGP

After qualifying from Southampton in 1982, I joined Newbridge in 1989. My special interests are women’s health and contraception, mental health and joint problems. I am a GP trainer and an appraiser of local GPs. I have three grown up sons who still keep me busy outside of work!

I like to go running with my dog and have recently started participating in Parkrun, although very slowly. I enjoy walking in the mountains and very much enjoy long distance cycling. I have cycled Land’s End to John O’Groats, St Malo to Nice and cycled around Spain and Italy in 2015.


Dr Matt Brooks – Partner
MB ChB 1999 LEICESTER MRCGP DRCOG

After graduating from Leicester then completing my GP training in Worcester, I joined Newbridge in 2005. I enjoy the diverse range of problems seen in general practice, including men’s health, and I perform some joint injections. Much of my time outside work is spent looking after my two young children.

I also enjoy cycling and answer medical questions for a cycling magazine. I volunteer for Sustrans, the charity behind the National Cycle Network, and play the trumpet in the Bath All Comers Orchestra.


Dr Lawrie Frere – Partner
MBBS 2005 BMedSci DRCOG nMRCGP PG Dip Med Ed.

I graduated from Barts and The London Medical School in 2005 and subsequently trained as a GP in Hackney. I worked there until 2017 during which time I had an active role in the CCG.

I have particular interests in mental health, men’s health and eye health.

I grew up in Bath and have recently moved back with my young family. I enjoy running, cycling (although the hills are a challenge!) and walks around the city and surrounding countryside.
