Welcome to The Wycliffe Medical Practice

Guidance notes for patients requesting exemption letters for Face Coverings
We are aware that some patients might be understandably anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of face masks in various public settings.
 
Some people don’t have to wear a face covering including for health, age or equality reasons. Some transport staff may not wear a face covering if it is not required for their job.
 
Your GP is not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters for patients who feel that they should be exempt from wearing a face mask.
 
The government guidance on exemptions suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption therefore it is sufficient for an individual to self-declare this. The responsibility for issuing exemptions lies with the transport provider not your GP. Similarly, practices are under no obligation to provide letters of support for anyone who does not fall under the list of exemptions but considers them to have another reason to be exempted.
 
Government advice on the use of face coverings can be found here – there is also a useful website which gives clear guidance has exemption cards embedded you can use for self-declaration :
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers#face-coverings
https://www.keepsafe.org.uk/mask
 
Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Local Medical Committee has therefore prepared this guidance note as the statutory body that advises and supports all GPs and practice teams across both counties.


PLEASE NOTE:
The government has issued updated guidance to hospitals and general practices which recommends that from Monday 15th June 2020, any patient attending general practice are to wear a face covering.
 
In view of this guidance we would ask any patient attending the practice from Monday 15th June 2020 onwards to wear a face covering at all times whilst on practice premises.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter
