Advanced Nurse Practitioner
My name is Diane O’Hara and I’m an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. My nursing career began when I was 17 as an auxiliary nurse and has progressed throughout the last 28 years. I am currently an Advanced Nurse Practitioner responsible for many aspects of patient care. I am also a non-medical prescriber enabling me to assess, diagnosis and treat patients in clinic.
I cover a wide variety of nursing roles including triage, minor injury/illness, sexual and reproductive health , respiratory, vaccinations, hypertension, health promotion and wellbeing.
I have continued to study throughout my nursing career, and I have a vast knowledge base allowing me to practice autonomously within my role.
I am passionate about nursing and can offer safe, effective, researched based care to my patients. I hope to meet you in clinic soon.
I love spending time with my family walking by the beach. I love to travel, my favourite holiday destination so far has been Dubai. I have a passion for photography especially landmarks, historical buildings and the Scottish countryside. I love coffee !
I have a bubbly, outgoing personality and enjoy socialising and going out for food and drinks however you will often find me at home in the kitchen baking cakes.
