NHS Covid-Track & Trace App to download and Venue check in


Notice for all staff, clients and students attending ALD Academy

As from today all salons must display the official NHS QR poster in the premises for all clients and staff to use with their NHS COVID-19 app. This is in addition to the client details we already collect as part of our service for assisting in NHS Test and Trace.

We will be displaying the QR poster at reception and throughout the salon so it is easy for clients to “check in” by simply scanning the QR code on their phone. You will need to download the NHS COVID-19 app, which is available for both Apple and Android users
All collected data remains on your phone and complies with GDPR legislation. Your contact details will only be shared with NHS Test and Trace if it is requested. For more information and to read our privacy notice, please visit our website
If you do not have a smartphone or the NHS COVID-19 app, the information we collate and will still be used to assist NHS Test and Trace if needed, however, it is advised that you use the NHS COVID-19 app to scan the available QR code to help the NHS Test and Trace quickly and effectively contact everyone who may have been exposed to the virus during an outbreak and to provide the appropriate public health advice. This will help to stop the onward spread of the virus by quickly informing anyone who has been in contact with the virus to isolate where needed.

Any queries please contact Paula Lowes on 01914111730 or email
