Dr Melanie Smith
MB ChB, MRCP, DMRD, FRCR
I was appointed Consultant Radiologist at St John's Hospital, Livingston, in 1994, where I was a general radiologist in a busy district general hospital.
In 1997 I was appointed consultant radiologist at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh. During my time there, I developed my interest in breast radiology in both screening and symptomatic breast imaging.
I have been a full-time breast radiologist for the past 11 years in one of the busiest breast units in the UK. For most of this time, I have practised at the Murrayfield Hospital, providing expert breast imaging; our services now also include MRI.
I am an active member of the Breast Group of the Royal College of Radiologists.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Melanie Smith at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I was born in Nottinghamshire and came to Scotland to study Medicine, quickly settling here. I have now lived in Edinburgh for over 20 years and am married with two children. When time permits, I enjoy travelling and music.
