After rescuing Mandelson, who will Lord Darzi's next patient be?

Lord Darzi, surgeon turned health minister, turned politician life saver, sprang into action this week when that other Lord, the Lord of Darkness, Peter Mandelson, started his first day back in the cabinet by copping an unfortunate kidney stone.

Lord Darzi, surgeon turned health minister, turned politician life saver, sprang into action this week when that other Lord, the Lord of Darkness, Peter Mandelson, started his first day back in the cabinet by copping an unfortunate kidney stone.

It's understood Number 10 called on Darzi to provide personal attention to Mr Madelson, presumably before Labour MPs could come in and finish him off.

Lord Darzi, who is said to have personally rushed the new business secretary to St Mary's Hospital, in Paddington, has history when it comes to helping those in the corridors of power, having saved the life of fellow peer Lord Brennan last year in the House of Lords after he had a heart attack.

But it is not known whether under his plans for continuity of care, he will take on Mr Madelson as a full time patient or whether he will extend his powers to save other sick members of the Government.

Who will be Dynamo Darzi's next patient at the House of Commons? Leave your patient, and expected condition, below.
