Professional Biography

Professor Dame Lesley Regan is Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Imperial College London, Co-Director of Women's Health Research Centre and Co-Director of the UK Pregnancy Baby Bio Bank, Member of the NHS Assembly, elected member of the US National Academy of Medicine and Honorary Secretary of FIGO (the International Federation of Gynaecology & Obstetrics) {{ label }}

Professor Regan established and continues to lead the Recurrent Miscarriage clinic at St Mary’s Hospital London. The largest tertiary referral service worldwide and an important research and training resource, it provides evidence-based treatments which have changed practice globally. She also developed a specialist clinic for women with uterine fibroids who wish to preserve their fertility and made a significant contribution to the delivery of Subfertility, Reproductive Endocrinology and Termination of Pregnancy services locally and nationally.

Over the last 10 years she has been awarded more than £25 million for healthcare research and quality improvement programmes nationally and internationally.  Her current teaching commitments include MSc and BSc modules on Maternal and Global Health, NWLondon Regional Midwifery training in post delivery contraception and supervision of MD/PhD research students.

Professor Regan was 30th President (2016-2019) of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, only the second woman to ever hold this role and the first in sixty-four years. In 2018 she was invited to co-chair the Women’s Health Task Force by the DHSC (jointly with Health Minister). As PRCOG, she led the publication of “Better for Women” in December 2019. This far reaching RCOG report promotes a life-course approach to the delivery of women’s health services and shines a light on many historically taboo topics such as period problems, pelvic pain, contraception, abortion, menopausal and mental health issues.

Lesley received a DSc from University College London in 2015 and a DBE for her contributions to women’s health in the 2020 New Year’s Honours list.
