Richard Parker (Cromer)

Richard Parker is a Registered Nurse and former Chief Operating Officer of the Norfolk & Norwich Universal Hospital. He now runs his own business, providing advisory support to NHS and private healthcare providers.
I specialised in Intensive Care Nursing, working predominantly in Leicester and London throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, including a period teaching both post-registration Intensive Care Nursing and Resuscitation Skills to other healthcare professionals. I completed my Executive MBA in October 2010, and worked at Board level in a number of NHS hospitals, including Croydon and Birmingham, and latterly as Chief Operating Officer at the Norfolk & Norwich from 2015-2019. During the Covid-19 crisis, I have provided pro-bono support and advice to a number of businesses, both locally and further afield, helping them with their response to the pandemic and suggesting ways in which they could help the NHS.
I am a keen rugby fan, and I'm a supporter and sponsor of the North Walsham Viking Rugby Football Club. I have a small boat and several canoes and - time permitting - can often be found paddling on the River Bure.
Priorities for Cromer
- I will work to make sure that health and social care work better together to support our older residents, whether in their own homes or in care.
- I will commit to working with local businesses to ensure the opportunities arising from Brexit are supported by the County Council, and are realised to the fullest extent - especially where they relate to fishing or agriculture.
- I will work closely with the local authority to strike the right balance between tourism and local housing needs.
- I will work with Duncan Baker MP and all stakeholders to find solutions to the problem of ambulance response times, and to support our local hospital here in Cromer.
If you'd like to discuss any issues or local concerns or find out more about me, please do get in touch - I'd love to hear from you. If you need help registering for a postal vote, I can help you with that too.
