The Partners

Dr Marion McNab
I grew up in Birmingham and moved to Bristol to study medicine in 1987. I completed my GP training in Bath and fell in love with the city and have remained here ever since. My special interests are patients with learning difficulties and the sensory impaired and I also particularly enjoy child health. When not working at the surgery I am passionate about swimming and can be found ploughing up and down the university pool. I also love to walk my two dogs in the beautiful Bath countryside with my husband and 3 teenage children.



Dr Paul Nicholson

I graduated in 1997 from Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London. I undertook hospital training in general medicine for a number of years and subsequently trained and qualified as a GP in 2003. I went on to become a GP trainer. I have particular interests in gastroenterology and men’s health. I enjoy running and hillwalking.



Dr Anne Coppola

I was born and grew up in Cambridge, and first studied for a Biology degree at Edinburgh University. After a career change, I went to Southampton to study Medicine. I qualified in 1998, and then trained to become a GP here in Bath. I found myself very happy to stay in the area and I was lucky enough to join the team at St. Michael’s, first as a locum GP in 2012 and then as a Partner in 2017. I have interests in Elderly Care, Baby and Maternal Health, and Mental Health problems. I enjoy spending free time with my three children and our host of pets, and playing violin in a number of different musical groups in and around the city.



Dr Jennifer Jefferies

I trained at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ medical school in London and qualified in 2008. Following my hospital posts I completed my GP training in Bath in 2013. I did my final year of training at St Michaels and have stayed there ever since! I became a partner in 2016, my areas of special interest are Women’s health and contraception, I also perform minor operations, joint injections and train Bristol medical students. I have 2 young daughters and enjoy spending time with my family.



Mrs Nicola Bebb
RGN, BSc Hons RCN Nurse Practitioner Certificate

I was born and brought up in the Caribbean and came to UK as a teenager. I did my RGN training at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, an eon ago, and my Nurse Practitioner degree in 1996. In 2004 my husband and I made the brilliant decision to leave London and moved to the West Country and at the same time I swapped a hospital and academic career to one in General Practice. Also a good decision. I joined St Michaels and the Beehive in 2014 and became a partner here in 2018. I am very much a generalist with a strong lean towards acute same day presentations. I am also developing an interest in gender reassignment. We live between Bristol and Bath, where I spend a lot of time nurturing the garden. I love travelling, exploring the natural world and in particular walking the coastline of West Wales.



Dr James Harrop

I qualified in medicine in 2007 and worked in Bath and Wiltshire for several years prior to joining St Michael’s as a GP partner in 2018. I have particular interests in clinical informatics, teaching and clinical research and I lead the Minerva research group. I perform selected joint injections. When not in clinic I enjoy software development and walks in the countryside.
