COVID-19 Information for Customers

COVID-19 Update 25-3-20

We understand this is a worrying situation, the safety of our colleagues and customers is our utmost priority. Following the Government decision to raise the COVID-19 response level to ‘Delay’ phase and implement ‘social distancing’ measures, we are making some temporary changes to our services to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We are still open for business, but we are reducing our face to face appointments. The changes below will be in place to protect our colleagues and customers.

From 23rd March;

  • The Repairs & Maintenance service will cover emergency repairs only and will also include any necessary compliance checks / H&S related work or inspections.

What will happen next?

Our customer service team will be contacting you shortly to cancel any non-emergency repairs you have booked in with us. We will also be cancelling any planned works such as kitchen, bathrooms if they haven’t started yet (we will finish these works if they have already started).

Contacting us 

The wellbeing of our customers and colleagues is vital and we are focused on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 in line with Government guidelines. We would ask that if you are self-isolating, have recently returned from a country listed here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus or have any of the known symptoms listed here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/  that you let us know this when you speak to a member of our team.

Colleagues from the Trust will be making additional checks with customers when making appointments and visiting customers to identify any risks to themselves or the wider public.  This is a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of infection in line with Government advice.  Trust colleagues will also be subject to the same screening when visiting our customers.

If you have changed your phone number or email address recently please contact us to make sure we have the correct contact information on our system. Call us on 0300 303 9848 or Contact us . You can also update your details by downloading our new App click here for more information.
