Government guidance regarding the wearing of face masks in GP surgeries:

“From today all patients attending GP surgeries across Derbyshire will be asked to wear face coverings. From next week (15 June), it will be compulsory to wear face coverings on public transport and in hospitals in England. To protect patients and NHS staff, Derbyshire GP practices are to follow suit by urging patients to provide, and wear their own face coverings in surgeries, as well as continuing to follow hand-washing and social distancing guidelines. As per government guidance, exemptions apply to very young children, disabled patients and those with breathing difficulties."
