With the recent Government announcement that England has moved to Plan B Coronavirus measures, we are under a legal obligation to ensure that we only admit guests that are in possession of a valid NHS COVID Pass. This is most commonly downloaded via the NHS App, but you can also use their online service. You will need to have or create an NHS log-in. You must be registered with a GP service in England to use the NHS app. Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have their own versions.
In effect it’s “No Pass – No Entry”
In order to obtain your NHS COVID Pass you will need to:
Be double vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior
You can book your vaccinations online by clicking here. You are also able to walk-in to certain vaccination centres without an appointment.
Submit to the NHS website/app the result of a negative lateral flow test
Anybody aged over 11 can use the Government’s free service to order lateral flow testing kits. Each pack contains seven tests. Head here to order. Testing kits can also be picked up for free from pharmacies. You will need to get a pharmacy collect code to pick one up. To gain access to a venue that requires a Covid-19 pass, take a lateral flow test no more than 48 hours before you enter. Then report the result here and it should be uploaded to your Covid-19 pass.
The NHS Covid-19 pass, for tests, can be used through the smartphone app or you can get a copy to print here. Remember, if you get a Covid-19 pass through a lateral flow test, it expires after two days.
The QR code on the pass will be scanned to allow entry.
Paper-only Covid-19 passes are currently only available for those who are fully vaccinated
Obtain an exemption from your GP
Those who cannot get vaccinations or take Covid tests due to medical exemptions can apply for a Covid-19 pass.
“The pass won’t show others that you have a medical exemption, just that you have the NHS Covid Pass,” The Government says.
We are unable to accept home produced exemption passes.
