We are aware that some patients might be understandably anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of face masks/coverings in various public settings. In line with Local Medical Committee (LMC) guidance we are unable to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face mask or covering. This extends to any patient who does not fall under the list of exemptions but considers them to have another reason to be exempted.
The government guidance on exemptions suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption therefore it is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this.
Government advice on the use of face coverings can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers#face-coverings.
