Diana Ham

Diana Ham - Nurse Sonographer / Director

Diana qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1983 at Dudley Road Hospital, Birmingham. After working as a staff nurse for approximately 12 months she moved to Good Hope Maternity Hospital to undertake Midwifery training. She realised that her future lay in Women’s Health Care and commenced work as a staff nurse on the gynaecology ward at Good Hope Hospital in 1986. Since then she has developed her expertise in women’s health care, she was the Gynaecology Ward Sister from 1989 until 1994 when she developed an "Early Discharge Scheme" and became the Gynaecology Liaison Sister. In December 2001, following a short secondment developing care pathways, she secured the post of Clinical Nurse Specialist for Fertility. This new post allowed her the autonomy to expand and develop the Fertility service at Good Hope Hospital, which also encompasses early pregnancy assessment.

Throughout Diana’s nursing career, she has continually kept her professional development up to date. She obtained a BSc in Women’s Health Studies in 2002 from the University of Central England and then went on to obtain an MSc, with distinction, in Advanced Practice Nursing in 2006. Following this she gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Ultrasound from Derby University; this has provided the essential knowledge base for performing and interpreting early pregnancy and gynaecological ultrasound scans. She completed a Non-Medical prescribing course at Birmingham City University and has completed advanced training in volume and 3D / 4D pregnancy and gynaecology scanning.

She has a current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered General Nurse and Nurse Prescriber and is registered with The Society and College of Radiographers.

She has a wealth of experience and expertise within the emergency gynaecology setting with a particular interest in early pregnancy assessment, and was the senior nurse lead for the Emergency Gynaecology Unit at Good Hope Hospital until 2014 when she left to focus on her private work.

In 2009 she was shortlisted for a prestigious Nursing Times Award for her work in setting up a gynaecology assessment unit and in 2010 she was recognised again at the same event where she received a Highly Commended Award for her work to improve the patient pathway for women suffering early pregnancy loss.
