Darren Parkinson

BRADFORD SOUTH - Darren Parkinson

Darren lives in Bradford with his partner and two children. He studied Social Policy at Hull University in the 90's and then in 2002 moved to Bradford to study Nursing at Bradford University. After qualifying as a Learning Disability Nurse he went on to gain a job in the NHS working with Disabled Children.

Working in the NHS, he sees first hand the impact of Tory austerity upon the services that his department provide - cuts to budgets make it very difficult to provide the high quality service needed by the disabled children and families he work with.
