We have been receiving queries from patients who feel they are unable to be vaccinated and/or tested for Covid-19 due to medical reasons and would like evidence of this.
You are now able to apply for proof that you have a medical reason why you should be exempted. However, this application is not done through the practice and we are unable to initiate or issue letters or statements regarding exemption outside of this new national process.
Please visit www.gov.uk – COVID-19 medical exemptions: proving you are unable to get vaccinated to view the national guidance around reasons why medical exemption may be appropriate and information about the process for applying for a medical exemption if you feel this applies to you.
An application for evidence of medical exemption can be started by telephoning 119 to speak to the NHS Covid Pass Service.
