Dr Prabani Wood (GP / Director)

BA(Oxford), BMBCh(Oxford), MPH (1st Class Hon, Auck), FRNZCGP

I was born in Sri Lanka but grew up in the UK. My medical degree is from Oxford University. I moved to New Zealand in 2005 with my husband, Andrew, an ENT surgeon at Waikato Hospital. I have a wide range of postgraduate medical experience and also a Masters in Public Health from the University of Auckland. I have two children and we have been proud Waikato residents since 2012.

Special interests: all aspects of general practice but particularly preventative health, women's health and chronic disease management.

I am passionate about providing the best possible care for my patients and I think it is my role as a GP to not only look after people when they are unwell, but also to support them to optimise their health and wellbeing.

I work at the practice on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Nursing team

We have a lovely nursing team comprising: Ami and Kelly, our Registered Nurses and Andrea, our PCPA. 

I was born and raised in Cambridge and have been back here since returning from Australia, where I lived for fifteen years. I have been at Cambridge Family Health since it opened. 

I started as one of the receptionists but I have since qualified as a Primary Care Practice Assistant. I am loving my new role and enjoy assisting the doctors and nurses. I am passionate about delivering a high standard of customer service to all the patients. 

My husband and I have three boys who keep us very busy. We all enjoy spending time with family and friends and sport is a big part of our lives.


We have three lovely receptionists: Adele, Jo and Sue

Sue has extensive experience as a manager in primary care, and prior to that, in the hospital setting. She is a proud mother and grandmother. When not at Cambridge Family Health, she is likely to be found in her garden. She also enjoys cooking, playing tennis and supporting her grandchildren in their various sporting endeavours. She is the Chair of the Cambridge Garden Club and is also a very talented seamstress.
