General practice is under considerable pressure as a direct result of the current challenges we are faced with delivering a service to patients at the same time as coping with the consequences of this virus.
There is no requirement for general practice to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government have clearly defined the exemptions to this requirement.
Instead, please visit the below website to download your own exemption card to wearing a face covering.
