Likewise. I got mine yesterday for anyone wanting to check in. Most of mine aren't tech savvy but the younger ones are more likely to use it.Hi,
It is my understanding that all businesses are required to display a QR code from Thursday 24th Sep but it is down the the client as to whether or not they decide to use the app and check-in. I applied for mine this morning and it takes minutes to get the code Create a coronavirus NHS QR code for your venue. I'll display my code at the entrance for those that wish to check in with the app, although, I keep a manual record as well as part of the consultation process anyway
Ive just been reading the NHs website specifically for this, I can't see any legal requirement, it uses words like 'should' not 'must' - it also says for those clients/customers who can't use the system, alternative records should still he held, I'm sticking to manual, then I know for sure it's complete and up to date.BABTAC have said "If you are in England or Wales you need to display a QR poster". I guess "need" means it's a legal requirement. We will ask people to scan it themselves or we will scan it on their behalf if they aren't tech savvy. Although hopefully it will be a straightforward process for us and the clients.
In England, using QR codes will help businesses meet the new legal requirement to record the contact details of customers, visitors and staff on their premises.
.An alternative check-in method must be maintained to collect the contact details of those who don’t have the app, for example a handwritten register
(My opinion) it's NHS Test & Trace, not Government mandated. It says on the NHS website its designed to assist T&T collect information. Considering the shower of shit the first version of T&T was/is I have absolutely no faith in it. I do however have faith in my process which can and will provide any and all necessary information required should I find myself in the unfortunate position of being infected/in contact with an infected person.It’s just annoying when you read one thing then find something completely different looks like a lot of us on here are having the same problem, to be honest I didn’t want to have to do it if I don’t have to as most of my clients are also not tech savvy so will still be sticking with good old *sanitizied* pen and paper
I think if I were in your position I'd get a QR code, display it as they advise, but continue with your paper version. If anyone is aware of the system and wants to use it, it's there and they can but it's not your first line of 'protection'.I wish my insurance would of contacted me with some kinda help oh I totally agree with u trinity, my problem is my salon is located within a bigger building with other businesses and our local council have popped in quite w few times, my I add they are very happy with how my salon is currently being operated but think they may have grumbled over other locations On site which are nothing to do with my business but I think I’m now worried that the slightest thing I may do wrong will be jumped on straight away e.g not displaying a huge qr code on my door that non of my clients are going to use
They have a do's and dont on the pdf copy in the bottom of your email. It says to not laminate or use glossy paper. I thought about doing the same thing but i think it changes the qr code ever so slightly! hths xoxoHi, I've just applied for the QR code, it took 2 minutes to do and receive it via email. I'm home based with a dedicated treatment room and will have it on display. I will continue to keep a paper record as I have done since I re-opened. I honestly can't see many clients scanning it. I live on a large estate and many clients are walking distance and don't even bring their phones with them. This is probably a stupid question, but if I laminate the QR poster will it cause a problem with scanning it?
Oh I feel for you. But, you're not on your own. I've only had this morning in work and the two salons I pass on the way home from work, near me, were shut (one was always VERY busy). Plus a guy who works on his own like me was sat in one of his chairs on his own, in another salon I pass. I have my regulars back but a lot are elderly. A couple of them passed away whilst I was shut sadly. They won't be around forever. That's my worry. I need to get more my age in (almost 50 ). But I love my old ones, love listening to them and having a laugh. They're still young at heart It's uncertain times. It's nice we have a place where we can help each other and put each others minds at ease. I'm sure your clients will be back, it seems every announcement scares everyone again. Good luck xxI am the same working from a home with a dedicated treatment room. I will print out the poster but I will still be using my own Covid forms, as allot of my clients are elderly and dont know how to answer their phone let alone have an app on it, or its so basic they may not have apps for their types of phones.
I would test the poster out under the laminate before you seal it in.
Today I have been feeling very anxious and worrying about business as it seems to have gone quiet yet again.
I have had one client today call as she said she is just too worried about coming in for anymore treatments at the moment due to her age, I have tried re assuring her as she has been in three times since re opening, so she knows what procedures I have put in place.
I will be calling her later on this evening to see if she would want me to shorten the treatment as maybe then that will help?
Doesn't help more mums at home have done cheap online courses and now started up working as a beauty therapist, under cutting my prices.
I use good quality products like O.P.I, Germaine de Capuccini skin care.
I am trying to remain positive and will be watching the news at 8pm tonight.
Hopefully this time we won't be told to close, as financially I will not be able to survive.
Any tips on how to try and entice more people in especially for facials as that has gone dead, I have done a September and October special express facial for only £25.00
Unfortunately I can't do massage at the moment due to frozen shoulder operation few weeks ago.
Hope you are all safe and well Julia xx
