Dr Avi Prasad is a Leicester graduate who has been a GP in the city since 1989 and continues to remain excited about medicine and passionate about the NHS. He currently provides GP services at Clarendon Park Surgery in the city. He believes that his continued role as a GP, while also acting as co-chair of the CCG Governing Body, works well, allowing him to see how the various policy decisions made by the CCG actually work on the ground.
Since taking on the role he has had numerous opportunities to develop high quality of care for patients as well as high quality, efficient and innovative clinical pathways that can genuinely improve patient care. Dr Prasad is excited about the challenges that lie ahead as we move forward into this new era of the NHS. Outside of work Avi has three adult children, all of whom work for the NHS.
