AN NHS rising star from Harrogate is “over the moon” after scooping a top award at a national ceremony.

Podiatrist Lara Chapman came out a winner at this year’s Advancing Healthcare Awards, which took place in London earlier this month.

Lara won a Rising Star Award for her work as a specialist podiatrist with Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust and a Clinical Research Associate with the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine.
