Health review of full-face veils launched


I agree with the above. Banning the wearing of face veils in healthcare is not about islamophobia. Wearing face veils efffects communuication with staff and patients as well as infection control. Anyone that works in healthcare spend a huge amount of time communicating. Even when staff wear face masks in theatre it is difficult to hear clearly sometime.I have never come across a fellow health worker wearing a face veil but I am sure there there is the potential for this to happen. Whilst it is important for one to hold on to their identity the patients needs come first. I really don't know why there is such a fuss about it, this is common sense.
