NHS Covid Pass
Updated 26 July 2021
At present, we require sight of your NHS Covid Pass as a condition of entry for the BBC Proms performances from Monday 2 August to Monday 6 September. For other events at the Hall, we currently welcome sight of your Pass if you have it to hand, but it is not a requirement for entry. This may change as the government guidance and regulations around live performances change.
An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results.
Under 18s should take a lateral flow test within 48 hours of the performance. Parents or guardians may be asked to show proof of the negative result on their behalf. All unaccompanied 16 to 18s will be required to show proof of their negative lateral flow test to enter Cadogan Hall.
Who can get an NHS COVID Pass in England?
If you’re aged 18 or over, you can get an NHS COVID Pass for domestic events depending on your vaccination status or COVID-19 test results.
2 weeks after your 2nd dose (Moderna, AstraZeneca and Pfizer) or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine (Janssen).
Negative Test Result
Negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test within the past 48 hours. You can order lateral flow tests here. You must register your rapid lateral flow test result on GOV.UK first before it appears on your pass.
Positive PCR test within the past 6 months, after you’ve finished self-isolating.
How to get your NHS COVID Pass
There are different ways to get a COVID Pass. We strongly recommend you organise your COVID Pass before arriving at Cadogan Hall, as it can take a few minutes to organise.
Get a digital version
Please note the NHS App is not the same as the NHSCOVID-19 app used by Track and Trace.
You can get a digital version by:
Downloading the NHS App – you must be registered with a GP surgery in England to use the app.
You will need an NHS login to use the above services. You’ll be asked to create one if you do not have an NHS login already.
Get a paper version (vaccination status only)
You can get an NHS COVID Pass letter sent to you in the post.
This shows you’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19. It does not show COVID-19 test results.
You can ask for a letter after having your 2nd dose of the vaccine, or after a single-dose Janssen vaccine. You may need to wait 5 working days before using the service, so that your records will be up to date.
You should get the letter within 5 working days.
You can use your letter at venues in England where you need to prove your COVID-19 status 2 weeks after you have been fully vaccinated.
You do not need to be registered with a GP surgery or have an NHS login for this.
You can get a letter by:
Calling 119 – It is also known as a COVID-19 post vaccination letter. The paper version does not have an expiry date.
If you are unable to complete any of the above steps
We can also accept a text or email confirmation of a negative lateral flow or PCR test taken within 48 hours of the performance. Please ensure you register your lateral flow test result online.
You can also call 119 for a COVID-19 post vaccination letter.
EU Digital Covid Certificates are also accepted.
