Facemasks are mandatory when using public transport and from 24th July 2020 they will also be mandatory in shops and other indoor spaces.
We understand that some patients will be anxious about wearing a mask especially those with certain medical conditions.
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. There is no need to contact us for an exception letter from your GP. However, if you are able to wear one a mask, even it if it is somewhat uncomfortable, please try to do so.
If you still feel you need some kind of excemption document then you can visit – https://www.keepsafe.org.uk/card where you can print off your own card for free.
