Face Mask exemption Letters: No GP medical letter needed

Face masks or coverings are now mandatory in most public areas.

We understand that some patients will be anxious about wearing a mask especially those with certain medical conditions.

GP’s are not required or in a position to provide exemption letters for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering.

The current guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide medical evidence for exemption from wearing face masks therefore a self- declaration should be sufficient.

Please go to the GOV.UK website for more information on the use of face coverings.

For specific requirements in reference to public transport, shops or other areas where masks are required please contact those specific companies for further information.
