Covid 19 Update – 26 March 2020

In light of the current situation and in keeping with government advice, as many of our office based staff as possible are now working from home.  We are working hard to maintain our service levels with the new approach.  We have a small team of staff still based in the office to ensure that we can continue to provide the usual service that members expect with regard to Claims.  If you are unable to get through to our team, we use an external service provider who will take messages and forward them to us and our staff will call you back at the first available opportunity.  We appreciate your patience at this time.

We feel it is important to provide our members and intermediaries with regular updates.  If you have supplied us with an email address, you will have received email updates.  If you haven’t registered an email with us, you can read the updates by clicking the links on our Home page.

Thank you for your continued support for the Society and our staff.  Please, stay safe.

Our office is open between 9.00 am – 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.  A message service is available outside of those hours and we will get back to you when the office next opens. Calls may be recorded for training purposes.
