Following the Government's announcement that the wearing of face masks in shops will be compulsory from Friday 24th July, we are receiving requests for letters of exemption.

The current government guidelines do not currently require an individual to provide evidence of exemption and as such, we are unable to provide letters regarding this.

If you are unable to wear a face covering, there are a number of websites from which you can print an exemption notice that politely advises others as to why you are not wearing a face covering.


Have you been referred for a hospital appointment, or received an appointment and are not sure what to do?

The hospitals have produced a helpful FAQ guide to answer some of the questions you may have.

If your question isn't answered on their website, patients can contact the team directly on 01539 716998.
