We would like to assure our members and partners that at BOHS we are committed to providing to highest level of service and support and continue our business operation as normal.

The health and wellbeing of our staff, members and partners remain our highest priority. Following the British Government’s latest advice, and in order to ensure the smooth operation of our organisation, we have been making adjustments to the way we perform certain activities.

We are also in close communication with our members and partners who are affected by these alterations.

In order to minimise unnecessary face-to-face contact, all staff are now working remotely, therefore we ask you all to contact the appropriate departments below via email.

Our office hours are:

Monday to Thursday - 8.30am to 4.30pm
Friday - 8.30am to 4pm

We will continue to send separate communications to our respective stakeholders with detailed information about how their activities re affected.

• How does infection occur?
