Mrs Badvie gained her early surgical training at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. An interest in bowel conditions led her to research how polyps develop into bowel cancer. She gained a further three awards for her cancer research and was subsequently awarded a Master of Surgery higher degree from the University of London.
She was offered a place on the highly competitive North West Thames programme of Higher Surgical Training, working in leading hospitals across London and treating bowel and anorectal conditions, along with advanced training in general operations such as hernia and gallbladder surgery using open and keyhole techniques. During her training, she was selected to teach surgical skills and how to operate safely to other surgeons training in the London Deanery, and she gained JAG accreditation in endoscopy and colonoscopy.
Mrs Badvie consolidated her experiences as a resident surgical officer (RSO) at St Mark’s Hospital, an internationally recognised leading UK centre for colorectal surgery, and as a senior registrar at the highly regarded Royal Marsden Hospital, operating on patients with complex disease and advanced colorectal cancer.
Following the completion of her training, Mrs Badvie was delighted to return to her medical school to undertake a senior colorectal fellowship at St Thomas’ Hospital, focusing on laparoscopic surgery. During this time she incorporated a travelling fellowship to Japan to learn specialist techniques used to remove bowel polyps by international leaders in endoscopy.
Following her senior fellowships, Mrs Badvie took up a consultant position at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. In 2015, after 16 years of working in the NHS, she changed her full-time NHS position to a sessional role. She is now based predominantly in the private sector, offering general, colorectal, laparoscopic and advanced endoscopic services, and she continues her teaching and surgical safety interests as a surgical skills trainer with Imperial College London, leading the Colorectal Surgical Skills Programme.
