Due to the escalating Covid-19 situation and the effect this has on us all, we would like to reassure each of you that Batcheller Monkhouse is still open for business and that our commitment to our clients, staff, contractors, suppliers and all those we work with remains unchanged.

We want to reassure you that we are taking measures to ensure maximum safety while continuing to work efficiently and to provide continuity of service. Our aim is to ensure that our client work is not compromised over this turbulent period whilst protecting both you and our team.

• We are closely monitoring the situation as it unfolds and we continue to adhere to advice from the World Health Organisation, Public Health England and the Chief Medical Officer.

• Our staff are kept updated with the official guidance on self-isolation. Any staff member who has visited an affected country, had close contact with someone who has visited an affected country, has been in contact with someone who is displaying symptoms or who is displaying symptoms themselves, will be required to work remotely for a period of time to ensure the safety of others.

• Our staff have the ability and technological capacity to work remotely and will do so wherever required for their safety and the safety of others.

• We will be minimising face to face and external meetings over the coming weeks – using telephone, video conferences and emails where possible.

• Our offices remain open, but we will minimise planned visits, using other forms of communication where possible. Where a meeting is necessary, we will ensure strict hygiene standards are maintained.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch, we will be happy to help in whatever way we can.

Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the virus.

The Batcheller Monkhouse Team.
