In some parts of the UK, it is now the law that people wear a face covering in certain places. These include shops, supermarkets, hospitals and on public transport, although it depends where in the UK you are, as there’s different guidance in each of the 4 nations.

Silton Surgery is not able to supply patients with an exemption card/letter.
