Christmas 2020: Student Covid-19 Testing Privacy Notice

What we do with the information you submit when you book a test.

Code Of Practice

The University of Bath is using an online booking process for students to book tests where you will need to input your personal information. The information will be used to schedule your test and to manage and monitor the take up of the arrangements at our testing sites. The information will be held securely and will only be kept for as long as is necessary.

On arrival at your test appointment, you will be provided with a test kit and asked to register with the government testing programme. The University will not have access to your registration data. You will be notified direct of your test result via the text or email that you provide when you register. The University will not automatically see your test results. Your personal information relating to the test registration and results is processed by NHS Test and Trace.

You can find further information for Bath students in our National Coronavirus testing programme FAQs and in the Government’s Covid-19 testing privacy information.

If you test positive, it is very important that you immediately follow both Government Guidance and the advice and notification procedure.
