Being Exempt from Wearing a Face Mask

Unfortunately the GP Practice will not be able to issue patients excempion letters.

There is advice and guidance on the government website

However, those people who can’t wear a face mask or covering because of a disability or severe distress can view the link below which provides Learning Disability Exemption Cards, Autism Exemption Cards and Parent and Child Exemption Cards.
