Motion text

That this House recognises the outstanding commitment of District Nurse Moira Westland and Staff Nurse Cara Donnelly of NHS Highland who have been administering covid-19 vaccinations to vulnerable residents living in the most remote parts of the Isle of Mull in Argyll and Bute; notes that during the recent bad winter weather, while delivering the coronavirus vaccines to those patients living in the most inaccessible part of the island, Moira and Cara were often required to make the journey on foot to reach the homes of their patients; and sends our sincere thanks to Moira and Cara and all of their NHS Highland colleagues for their remarkably efficient roll out of the covid-19 vaccine across our rural and island communities and for their determination to ensure that no one living in the highlands and islands of Scotland misses out on being vaccinated against covid-19.
