How we are keeping you safe
We’re taking steps to minimise the risk of exposure in our local communities by:
Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sanitisation in our branches and of our ATMs
Conducting appointments over the phone rather than face-to-face where possible
We’re also keeping our employees safe so they are available to keep our branches open
