If you also have a template that you would like to share with others, please do let us know about it and we will upload here.

GP Practice Open for Business Toolkit - This document has a selection of messaging templates for practices to use and adapt to inform patients on how to access primary care and that practices are "open for business".
Face Masks on Public Transport & in Shops
From 15th June for public transport and from the 24th July for shops, it is a requirement that people wear face masks or covering.
Practices are reporting increases in requests from patients for letters of exemption. The government guidance on exemptions suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption, therefore it should be sufficient for an individual to self-declare this. Practices are not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions. 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. General practice should decline to provide such letters. You may wish to use the following template letters to do so.
A number of bus companies have provided links on their websites for those who are exempt to download exemption passes and we have provided some links to bus operators across Wessex, below:
Swindon Bus Company
Great Western Railway
South Western Railway
