Lord Darzi

Patron / Ambassador

Lord Darzi is a multi-award winning surgeon at Imperial College London and was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Health from 2007 to 2009.

During his time as a government Minister, David Cameron said Lord Darzi made an “outstanding contribution” to health policy. Lord Darzi has a personal reason for supporting our work, having survived meningitis himself. His daughter, Nina, is also an advocate of our work and is one of our Young Ambassadors.
