How to create a NHS QR code

Businesses and venues need to display an official NHS QR code poster, as part of the government's efforts to control coronavirus.


This is so customers can check-in at different locations through the NHS Track and Trace app, from 24 September.

QR code posters are a quick, simple and secure way for visitors to check-in to your venue.

You should create and display a QR code if you are:

  • a business, place of worship or community organisation with a physical location that's open to the public
  • running an event, taking place in a physical location

Create a NHS QR code for your venue or event

When app users check-in, they'll have a digital diary of venues they've been to on their phone . If they become ill, this diary can be used to support conversations with contract tracers.

Important public health messages can be sent to relevant app users' phones if needed.

Venues will not be named in any messages.

Using the NHS QR code system, you will be helping to protect yourself and your customers from the impact of the virus.
