McCormicks Solicitors of Harrogate has acted for Leeds United in the move to set up a Covid-19 vaccination centre on part of the renowned Elland Road site.
McCormicks Head of Commercial Property, Heather Roberts, and her team acted on behalf of the football club to agree an occupational agreement for the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
She said: “We were delighted to be able to complete the agreement in just nine days before Christmas and contribute to the national vaccination effort in some small way. It was a real team effort not only between the respective clients, who worked tirelessly on the detail of the site requirements, but also the local stakeholders, their lawyers and surveyors who all played their part in getting this across the line as soon as possible. Elland Road was a natural choice for the NHS because of its great connectivity, proximity to the motorways and available parking.”
Elland Road is one of four large vaccination sites being set up in West Yorkshire, with others in Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield. Vaccinations will be by appointment only, with GPs notifying people when it is their turn. .
