Exemption Letters – Face Coverings

Dear Patients,

With regards to Covid-19 and the compulsory wearing of face coverings on Public Transport, Shops and Supermarkets.

We are receiving a high volume of phone calls with requests for us to provide mask exemption letters.

Please be reminded that there is no requirement for GP Surgeries to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government have clearly defined the exemptions to this requirement.

The government guidance on exemptions suggests there is no requirement of evidence for exemption; therefore it is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this.
