Mrs Jane McCallum
Thread vein nurse
Registered General Nurse
I am calm, organised and a very experienced General, Aesthetic and Practice nurse, with a range of clinical skills and a kind and firmly reassuring manner. I work currently as a Staff Nurse at Spire Murrayfield Hospital as well as running The Leg Clinic. I have been working in the vascular area for nearly 10 years and is a member of the British Association of Sclerotherapists.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mrs Jane McCallum at Spire include:
I am an experienced general nurse specialising in microsclerotherapy. I treat “telangiectasia” also known as thread veins or spider veins of the legs and I work closely with vascular surgeon Mr Roderick Chalmers.
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 undertake continuous professional development in my field.
I trained at Guys Hospital London progressing to Ward Sister on a general surgical ward at King Edward VII Hospital for Officers. I moved to Scotland in the 90's and have never stopped nursing in some way whist raising my family. I am keen on Theatre, Opera, Ballet and film and walking with my dog on East Lothian's beaches.
