Lord Darzi of Denham (Ara Darzi) remains as a hugely influential figure in health policy design and thought. As one of the world's leading surgeons at Imperial College (where he holds the Paul Hamlyn Chair of Surgery), Lord Darzi is uniquely qualified as a clinician recognised internationally as a leading advocate for applying innovative reform to health service delivery.
In September 2013, Lord Darzi was appointed by the Mayor of London to lead a review of health, wellbeing and services in London. The London Health Commission (which reported in October 2014) proposed the toughest measures seen in the UK to tackle the “obesity emergency” including a call for the Mayor to rewrite the London Plan to give borough councils greater autonomy in banning takeaways from within 400m of school gates.
In his political career under the Blair Labour government, Lord Darzi is perhaps best known for his Polyclinic recommendations into the future for primary care - again a hot topic in 2015 - which many commentators acknowledge as still required.
Roy Lilley will interview Lord Darzi at the Kings Fund in what is certain to be a rapidly 'sold out' event. Please book now to ensure your seat in the audience.
The evening starts at 5.30pm with registration and a drinks reception before the HealthChat commences at 6pm until approximately 7.30pm.
