Dr Ann Redgrave, Lady Redgrave (née Callaway; born 8 February 1960), is the wife of British rower Steve Redgrave and is a qualified British surgeon and osteopath.

She qualified as a doctor from Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, London in 1984 and entered a career in orthopaedic surgery, with an interest in sports medicine. However, due to her own international rowing commitments, she then took a sabbatical in 1988 for the Seoul Olympic Games. During her sabbatical, she developed an interest in osteopathy and thus trained at the British School of Osteopathy following her year out, qualifying in 1990. She established The Redgrave Clinic in late 1990, which has since begun to offer a range of other treatments from physiotherapy to the Alexander Technique.[citation needed]

Redgrave rowed in the women's eight at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. She was Chief Medical Officer to GB Rowing between 1992 and 2001, but continues to act as a consultant to "advise GB Rowing on medical issues." She became GB Rowing's first full-time Medical Officer in 2009.[1]

She was awarded her first Honorary Degree from Loughborough University in 2001, and a second in 2004 from the University of Staffordshire. Upon her retirement as Chief Medical Officer of GB Rowing in 2001, she was awarded a medal of honour.[citation needed]
