Ward Williams Coronavirus Business Continuity Plan

Updated 18 March 2020

The spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continuing to dominate the news, with major implications for public health and the NHS. It is also causing economic disruption and we want to reassure you we have put in place sensible measures to ensure that Ward Williams is well prepared and well positioned to continue to provide our services.

So, we'd like to explain what we're doing to keep you safe and for the business to be able to run efficiently since the latest Government announcement.

We would like to make you aware of the below points:

Remote working from 18th March

All Ward Williams staff will be remote working from Wednesday 18th March. We already operate an agile working policy which means our staff have the ability to work from home and can access our systems in a secure IT environment. Your office contact will remain the same and will operate usual office hours and will also be fully contactable by telephone and email.

Access to office & meetings

  • If you need to drop off or collect records please contact your usual Ward Williams contact and we will make arrangements.
  • Due to the closure of the office, we would like to make you aware we have video conferencing facilities should you wish to make alternative arrangements to meetings.
  • Please try to avoid sending cheques, instead you can make payments over the phone (01932 830 664) / BACS.
  • We will assume unless we hear from you we have permission to open and scan your post. This will avoid any delay in the receipt of private post.

Government assistance for individuals and businesses

The government has announced support but as yet there is no actual detail to this. We will contact you in the coming days regarding suitable options and suggestions once this information is available.

If you have any comments or questions. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact with a member of Ward Williams.
