"As a local campaigner born and raised in Lawrence Weston and Shirehampton I would be honoured to represent you and our city in Parliament as the first local MP for Bristol North West to have been born and raised here. It's a two horse race here between me and the Tories. I hope you'll vote Labour on Thursday 7th May." - Darren Jones
Darren is a former NHS worker and is supporting Labour’s plan for 20,000 more nurses, 8,000 more doctors, guaranteed 48 hour GP surgery appointments and one week cancer test results.
Locally, he is working with GP surgeries and Southmead Hospital to understand the solutions needed to tackle GP appointment times, financial deficits and car parking.
Tory MP Charlotte Leslie has called for new patient charges in GP surgeries and A&E departments.
Darren is campaigning against privatisation of our NHS, against the call for patients charges and for the removal of the NHS from an EU/US trade deal that could see US companies run part of our NHS.
