Face Mask Exemption Requests
In England, you must by law wear a face covering on public transport and in shops and supermarkets as of 24 July 2020.
The Government guidance suggests there is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It should be sufficient for someone to declare that they are eligible for an exemption direct with the person questioning them (eg bus driver).
Practices are therefore not required to provide letters of support for those who fall under the list of exemptions, or to those who do not fall under the list of exemptions.
Some transport providers are providing evidence of exemptions themselves, see for example this information from First Bus and Arriva.
Lime Tree Surgery will not be providing exemption letters to patients.
Face coverings (30/06/20)
All patients from the age of 2 years should please wear a face covering when visiting the surgery. Many Thanks.
Lime Tree & Phoenix merger: message from Dr Chowdhury (01/04/2020):
Today I am delighted to say that the Phoenix Medical Centre in Goring have merged with the Lime Tree Practices. We will be delivering services across three sites including Phoenix Goring, Lime Tree Surgery Findon Valley and the Durrington Health Centre. We will continue to run services in all these three sites and will focus on making the most of the greater number of staff, resources and locations in this new partnership.
Our original plan was to have a launch event, but current circumstances mean that this is not possible. We will be back to normal as soon as we can and I’m looking forward to moving on with this new partnership and to providing more of our usual services to all of our patients.
