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
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

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.

I trained at Bristol University Medical School then as a GP with Newbridge Surgery in 1994/95. I have continued to work here ever since and currently do two and a half days per week.

As well as seeing the full range of general practice problems, I perform some minor surgery. I am a mother to two young children.

I graduated in 2010 from Aberdeen University and then began post graduate training in Bristol. I have been living in the South West since then. In 2015 I took a year out from training and worked in a rural hospital in Tamil Nadu in India.

I initially started working in Newbridge Surgery as a GP registrar and qualified as a GP in September 2016 and continued to work here a as a salaried doctor.
