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
