WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS

Following the latest Government guidance, we will be asking everyone coming into our surgeries to wear a face covering.

If you are exempt from wearing one (see guidance below), we understand and would not ask you to provide evidence of this.

Please also note, we cannot provide any letters for patients confirming their exemption from wearing face coverings due to illness or disability. It should be sufficient for you to declare that you are eligible for exemption from wearing a face covering, if you are challenged.

However, certain organisations have excellent face covering exemption cards that patients can print off or add to smartphones.

The Keepsafe ones (on the link above) are very good and there are also easyread posters explaining about face coverings and exemptions and cards that can be printed off for you to use.
