I become involved in local issues after, in recent years, becoming a father of twins.
After years of mistakes, Labour have taken the people of Darlington and the North East for granted and change is needed.
I am married with 3 children and I currently manage a busy school office.
I was lucky enough to be a Governor when my children were at primary school, as well as being Chair of a local pre-school committee.
I work full time in the NHS, currently as a skin cancer plastic surgeon at Darlington Memorial Hospital and Dr Piper House.
During my 35 years as a GP and surgeon, I have developed strong listening and negotiating skills and consider myself to be a people’s person.
Paul, who was born and raised in Darlington, has served two terms as Heighington and Coniscliffe Ward Councillor and has worked with Children & Young People Scrutiny, and Corporate Parenting, ensuring our looked-after children get the best possible chances.
