It has recently come to our attention that some airlines are asking their customers to provide an exemption letter from their GP before they will agree to them flying without wearing a facemask. This type of request is unnecessary as per The Scottish Government and NHS Scotland guidance.
Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for face covering exemption letters as this is not something that your GP can provide.
As per Scottish Government guidelines exemption certifications are not required, however, should you need this for travel purposes for any Airline you can request a free face covering exemption card by phoning 0800 121 6240 or through the NHS Scotland exemption card website.

If you require any further guidance on this matter please contact the practice in the first instance.
