Face Mask exemption:
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
If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.
Sick Note Requests - If your employer is requesting a sick note and you are currently self-isolating, please print a copy of the letter below for your employer.
