Coronavirus – Update
To help minimise the spread of coronavirus, we are carefully following the latest Government recommendations. Our phone lines are exceptionally busy, please only call if you need urgent help.
Following government announcements from across the UK regarding further easing of restrictions and re-opening more businesses, we have extended our branch opening times from 2nd June 2020. Our Branches in Northern Ireland will increase core operating hours to Monday – Friday 10am–3pm. Check our branch locator to see if your branch is impacted. Please don’t visit your branch unless you really can’t do something online or in the mobile app. We’ll only be open for customers who need to carry out critical transactions or need emergency support. We’re allowing a maximum of 2 customers at any one time into our Branches. This means more space to maintain a safe distance of 2m. We’ll also ask you to stay 2m apart from others when queuing outside our branches. Older customers or those not able to stand or wait outside in the cold will be invited into branch ahead of others.
The safety & wellbeing of our customers & colleagues is our priority. In view of latest government guidance on 23/3/20 we have taken the difficult decision to pause our mobile fleet service with immediate effect. As our service travels to over 600 communities every week this decision has been made to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. We are proactively contacting our regular customers to see how we can help & support them in the interim. Customers can continue to access their banking services through our other channels, digital, mobile, ATMs, video banker, telephony and Post Office.
All of our Digital Channels are available to you - including our Mobile Banking App which has a 24/7 Chat and Messaging Service. You may find that easier for you, especially if your enquiry is not urgent.

Remember to be alert to suspicious phone calls, texts or emails from anyone claiming to be from the bank with a message about Coronavirus. Trusted organisations will NEVER ask you for your full PIN or password, card reader codes, or ask you to move money from your account.
