Health review of full-face veils launched


I really do not understand how this has received such media attention. I reckon its a case of islamophobia and its painful to observe. I have never encountered any health care professionals who wear the full veil in practice. I suspect the numbers are few and far between and ,in any case, should be managed locally. No doubt ,this may be seen an oppressive practice which will lead to more and more numbers wearing the veil. However, Communication and Infection Control would be concerns on my part.
