GP practices in Otley have been praised by local Labour candidate Lucy Nuttgens after she received her first Covid jab at Westgate Surgery.

Ms Nuttgens said the West Yorkshire vaccine programme had seen GP practices in Otley rolling out the Covid vaccine programme ahead of some other parts of the country.

She said:"As someone in the clinically vulnerable category, it was a fantastic feeling to get my first jab and know I'm on the way to being protected."

"A big shout out to all the local staff and volunteers involved front and backstage in the vaccine roll-out. The NHS, Public Health and Leeds City Council have helped build one of the strongest local partnerships for testing and vaccinating in local communities. That's partly why Otley practices are so efficient in delivering jabs. I'd like to say a huge thank you to Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group and our local GPs and nurses."
