Reopening : What we're doing to keep you safe


As we start phase one of our reopening, we want to make sure we proceed in the safest way possible. 

Here's some of the measures we have in place. Please contact us if you there is anything you'd like to discuss.

To ensure social distancing:

  • We're limiting the number of people in any work area to comply with the 2-metres recommended in line with Government Guidance
  • Door welcomers will be in place to offer service and to ensure limits are not exceeded
  • Fixed staffing teams in limited numbers
  • Introducing one-way systems to departments where relevant.

  • Installing screens at all till points and service areas 
  • Floor markings to indicate 2 metre distancing, no entry, one way system
