Face Mask Exemptions

Posted on July 29th, 2020

Whilst we appreciate that these are challenging times for our patients, it is not the responsibility of a GP to issue an exemption letter to an individual from not wearing a face mask within various public settings. Government guidance regarding exemptions suggests there is no requirement for an individual to produce evidence of exemption, such as a letter from a GP and therefore should be sufficient for an individual to self-declare this. In these circumstances, it is not a medical reason that requires a written letter from the GP for those who do or do not, fall under the list of exemptions.
