Dr Tracey Belle Ballais
Tracey Belle grew up in North Queensland and graduated from James Cook University in 2010. She interned at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital before taking up a post in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Bundaberg Hospital in 2012. Tracey Belle moved back home to Townsville in 2014 and continued to work in obstetrics and gynaecology at the Townsville Hospital until early 2017 when she decided to pursue a career in general practice. Whilst she still has a passion for women’s health, Tracey Belle enjoys the diversity of general practice and hopes to obtain her Fellowship with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) by mid-2019.
Tracey Belle is currently working towards further qualifications in paediatrics and is enrolled in the Sydney Child Health Program (formally Diploma of Child Health) through the Sydney Children’s Hospital. This year, she will also be finalising her Advanced Diploma in Obstetrics (DRANZCOG Advanced) through the Royal Australian College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RANZCOG).
These strong foundations in women’s health allow Tracey Belle to offer care for women in all stages of life. This includes management, advice and referrals in relation to: contraception (including Implanon NXT and Mirena IUD insertion), cervical cancer screening, pregnancy shared care, menopause, prolapse and urinary incontinence.
Tracey Belle is the mother of a beautiful little boy and her husband runs a small local business; thus, family and community are very important to her, as is maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
