Following recent government guidelines on the transmission and infection from COVID-19, all patients entering the surgery will be required to wear either a face mask or a face covering at all times. This is for your safety and the safety of other patients and staff. Please do not visit the practice unless you have been asked to do so.
Supplying face mask exemption letters to patients
GP Practices are reporting increases in requests from patients for letters of exemption to wearing face masks in public settings.
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.
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.
We are aware of the difficulties our patients have been experiencing when trying to book an appointment for a blood test.
A new On line service as now gone live where you can book appointments for the clinic of your choice.
