Having qualified from Leeds University Medical School in 1989, Mr Broadhead undertook all of his general training in obstetrics and gynaecology in and around Nottingham. During this time, he developed an interest in gynaecological cancer and successfully completed a DM thesis on targeted chemotherapy for ovarian cancer. Thereafter, Mr Broadhead returned to Leeds for a subspecialty training fellowship in gynaecological cancer surgery and was subsequently appointed as a consultant gynaecologist and gynaecological oncologist at St James's University Hospital in 2002. In addition, he is a registered colposcopist with the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology. Apart from his general gynaecological and colposcopy practice, Mr Broadhead is one of the subspecialty consultants in the Leeds Cancer Centre providing surgical treatment for gynaecological malignancy, where he has developed laparoscopic (keyhole) techniques to perform hysterectomies and remove ovarian cysts.
