Dr. Natasha Prasad, MUDr, MRCGP (UK), FRACGP
Dr Natasha is our fully-trained and qualified General Practitioner, holding full practicing registration in both Australia and the United Kingdom.
Natasha was born and raised in the United Kingdom. She completed her schooling there, before moving to the Czech Republic to complete her medical studies. Following the completion of her six-year medical degree, she moved back to the UK, to complete her internship and junior medical jobs, in the process gaining full medical registration with the General Medical Council, the sole medical regulatory body in the UK. She primarily practiced in the northwest of the UK, working in several major teaching hospitals, before gaining entry to a competitive training programme in General Practice and Family Medicine, in the picturesque Cotswolds region.
Natasha completed the arduous three-year training course, passing several exams along the way, to be awarded the prestigious Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP), allowing her to practice as a fully-fledged GP.
Following a period of practice in the UK, Natasha moved to Australia, with her husband. The quality of her training was immediately recognised by the Australian regulatory authorities and she was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP). Natasha initially practiced as a GP in Melbourne, before moving to the beautiful Northern Rivers. She initially practiced in Lismore, in 2014, before moving to a Practice in Ballina. Natasha feels that this time practicing in the region has given her a valuable opportunity to become familiar with the local area and population, being able to anticipate and understand the needs of her patients. She has also had the opportunity to build up valuable links with other local healthcare providers, enabling her to arrange the best possible care for her patients.
Natasha's particular professional interests are:
- Women's health
- Family planning
- Skin cancer screening
- Chronic disease management
- Travel medicine and immunisations
Natasha currently lives in the beautiful countryside outside Ballina, with her husband and three very active dogs!
