The British Menopause Society congratulates Professor Dame Lesley Regan on her historic appointment as the government’s first ever Women’s Health Ambassador for England. Dame Lesley has worked in women’s health for 42 years. In her new role, she will drive system-level changes to close the gender health gap and support the implementation of the upcoming Women’s Health Strategy for England.

Given Lesley’s particular interest in menopause, the BMS welcomes her appointment and looks forward to working closely with her over the coming months and years.
