Checking-in on Arrival

After sanitising your hands and having your temperature taken, you will be asked to provide your personal details to assist with the government’s Test & Trace Scheme.

In line with guidance issued by the Department for Health and Social Care and in compliance with GDPR legislation we will keep your details safely for 21 days before securely deleting them. We will only share your details with NHS Test and Trace, if asked, in the event that it is needed to help stop the spread of coronavirus. We will not use your details for any other purposes or pass them on to anyone else.


Members & Regular Visitors

To make our Test & Trace recording more seamless, we have implemented a new system for our members and regular visitors.

  • You will sign a one off consent form, allowing us to record your details in a database which then assigns you a number.
  • You will be issued with the number on a card which you can keep in your wallet/purse. 
  • Each time you enter the building you simply say or show your number and your attendance will be recorded.
  • Your details of attendance will still be deleted after 21 days, however your authorisation to record each time you attend will be maintained until you instruct us otherwise.
