You will need to use the NHS Covid 19 App to allow you to do this. If you use an iphone, please download the App via the App store, if you use an Android phone please use Google play. It would be advisable to download the App prior to your visit to us. An alternative to a QR code will be available should you wish to use it.
Although not a Legal Requirement, anybody attending a Registration Office for a Ceremony is encouraged to wear a face covering.
