Jane qualified as a physiotherapist in 1987, gaining a distinction in her exams and winning the Sarah Leeson Memorial Award for the most promising student. After qualifying she worked in the NHS and private practice for 12 years specialising in Neurology and then Orthopaedics.
Jane has been quietly helping individual patients deal with advanced cancer designing integrative therapy programmes, including old off patent drugs which the patient needs to get from their doctor. There have been many problems with acquiring these drugs so it was a massive relief when she discovered the Care Oncology Clinic in 2015 which is studying an almost identical protocol to her own. Since then Jane has found the courage to speak out about her illness in public. She now spends her spare time educating and empowering cancer patients to seek alternative treatments, in particular to research old drugs. She has a growing facebook following on her ‘Jane McLelland Off label drugs for Cancer’ site. She has visited parliament several times to help change legislation with off patent drugs.
