Reducing COVID-19 transmission

Government guidance suggests that there is no requirement for evidence for medical exemption from wearing face coverings and that it is sufficient for a person to self-declare they are eligible for exemption in incidences where a face covering is required.

Taking this into consideration, there is no need for anyone to ask their GP practice to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or indeed do not. GPs are currently seeing a rapid increase in workload as they deal with the on-going impact of the coronavirus pandemic and therefore the Government must do more to communicate this guidance more effectively to avoid people unnecessarily seeking exemption notes from their GP.
