Mrs Badvie was awarded a medical degree with distinction in 1999 from Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals, University of London, along with two prizes in surgery, four awards in cancer research, a national scholarship and a further immunology degree with honours.

Following early surgical training at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, an interest in bowel conditions led her to research how polyps develop into bowel cancer, and how to improve measures for early detection of colorectal cancer. She gained a further three awards for her cancer research and a Master of Surgery higher degree from the University of London.

Mrs Badvie subsequently completed higher surgical training on the North West Thames rotation in London, 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 in the London Deanery.

Mrs Badvie consolidated her experiences as a resident surgical officer (RSO) at St Mark’s Hospital and at the Royal Marsden Hospital, operating on patients with advanced and complex colorectal disease, along with a senior colorectal fellowship at St Thomas’ Hospital, focusing on laparoscopic surgery and advanced colorectal disease. She incorporated a travelling fellowship to Japan to learn advanced endoscopic 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 in the NHS, she changed her full-time position to a sessional NHS role. She now works predominantly in the private sector and continues her teaching and surgical safety interests as a trainer with Imperial College London, leading the Colorectal Surgical Skills Programme.
