Face Mask exemption Letters: No GP medical letter needed

Posted by: simonbeer - Posted on:

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 link below for more information on the use of face coverings.   https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own

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