Portway Family Practice 

Important Information

Suppling face masks exemption letters to patients.

We have had an increase in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in various public settings.

Our response follows the UK Government guidance and supported by the British Medical Association.

The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (e.g. Bus Drivers)

Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.

For more information please see the gov.uk website
