NHS orders review of full-face veils
A review into whether NHS staff in England should be allowed to wear full-face veils is to be carried out to ensure that patients have "appropriate face-to-face contact", ministers said Thursday.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he had a "great deal of sympathy" with patients who do not want to be treated by a doctor or nurse wearing full face coverings.
"I think it is very important that patients do get proper contact with the doctors and nurses who are looking after them," he told the BBC.
