Like most small businesses, most independent practices don’t have an HR department! So how do you go about recruiting the right staff? How do you keep in touch with the most recent employment legislation? What’s the best way of managing payroll? How do you know if you are Health & Safety Compliant? And how can you do all of that yourself? The plain answer is – if you want to provide the best experience for your clients – you can’t! Trust the experts and save some of your precious time by outsourcing to experts.

"What a fantastic resource the knowledge hub is. I've used the PR/Social Media calendar as our template which is great, because it gives basically a checklist of things for me to do - which is much easier."

We would never not be a member of Sight Care.

Clark Family Eyecare

Back at the end of 2017 we had a letter arrive from an audiology company asking if we would be interested in their services, a service I’d never really thought about offering our current pxs and the surrounding community. Long story short after speaking to John he put us in touch with a group very much like SightCare but full of audiologists rather than Opticians! After speaking with a member of the HearCare team we were introduced to a local independent Audiology company who had the same values as Cheryl and I have for our practice. Our clinics started in May, provisionally as a 4 weekly thing and so far, after sending out a letter to all our over 60 cx we are now booked up until July. That’s after we increased the amount of clinics, which is now 1 day (a day we haven’t got our own clinic) every 2 WEEKS.

We work on a commission basis rather than renting the room, our staff 100% back the venture, by mentioning it to our cx and the occasional Facebook post. We have had posters and window decals made by the company and are still inundated with calls asking us to book hearing tests-the majority of who don’t want to step foot in chain stores or who have been to places like these and wish they never bothered.

Independent hearing care + independent optical care (especially if you have the space) =winner.

"We joined SightCare’s DPO service and was a bit concerned about workload and value but nevertheless took the plunge.  A few month’s in now and we are confidently compliant. We have also received an immediate response to every query we’ve raised.  If you looking for an external DPO (as recommended) you won’t do better than the looking at the SightCare Service."

" We joined the SightCare DPO service and by return we had a template Compliance Report and full set of Compliant Procedures and Polices. It was a fairly easy step (with help of SightCare’s DPO) to apply these to our business. In the unfortunate event of a data breach,  I have a comprehensive folder full of the relevant documentation, ready to present, if the need arises.  I now sleep soundly or at least I’ve no worries as far as GDPR compliance is concerned".

"One of the things about working for a national chain is the fact that in complicated things like applying for an NHS contract, the head office do much of the work for you. Having help from people like yourself is fantastic."

I think SightCare is a marvellous company and a life saver for business owners like me. I will recommend you to anyone I meet!”
