5. What is NHS Test & Trace Policy at StreetEat?

NHS Test & Trace will be carried out at all StreetEat sites. Underbelly are using a service called FireText. You can either text your name directly to the phone number provided at each StreetEat site, or use the unique QR code which will generate a pre populated text message for you to add your name to. 


In line with Government guidance, we ask that customers provide their contact details to support NHS Test and Trace. This information will only be used where necessary to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and will not be shared with anyone else or used for any other purpose.  Provision of this information is voluntary.


Records will be kept for 21 days. This reflects the incubation period for COVID-19 (which can be up to 14 days) and an additional 7 days to allow time for testing and tracing. 


We are asking customers to provide their name and a contact phone number.

If there is more than one person in a group, then just the ‘lead member’ needs to provide their details.
