Track and Trace
To support the government with the control of the virus COVID19 we ask all meeting organisers to ensure they have the contact details of all their attending guests. It is best practice that we will also ask everyone that enters our venues to use our simple track and trace measure to record simply their name and contact details. We require minimum amount of personal data needed which is why we are asking for your name and your telephone number or email address.
Any data collected by our track and trace forms will only be shared with those bodies that are responsible for contact tracing. Any data retrieved will not be used for any other purpose and any data older than 21 days will be securely deleted each week.
NHS Test and Trace is a key part of the country’s ongoing COVID-19 response. If we can rapidly detect people who have recently come into close contact with a new COVID-19 case, we can take swift action to minimise transmission of the virus. This is important as lockdown measures are eased and will help us return to a more normal way of life and reduce the risk of needing local lockdowns in the future.
Government guidance has asked public venues to assist the NHS Track and Trace efforts by keeping a temporary record of all customers and visitors for 21 days. This information is being collected to assist national efforts to track infected individuals or those who may have come into contact with such individuals.
NHS Test and Trace includes dedicated contact tracing staff working at national level under the supervision of Public Health England (PHE) and local public health experts who manage more complex cases. Local public health experts include both PHE health protection teams and local authority public health staff.
Should you as an individual that has been in one of our venues OR you as an organiser have been informed of a POSITIVE case of COVID19 we ask that the individual that has tested positive goes to the website and fills in their relevant details.
The Track and Trace staff will then be in contact with us as a venue to request our tracing data and we will follow their guidance on what actions we should take next
