  • Please remove items from labs, pinch points or busy areas to an easily accessible space to avoid disruption.
  • We may ask you and colleagues to leave the immediate area, to enable us to safely collect items.
  • Be as specific as possible with item details and location to assist us with efficient and safe planning. Failure to do so could affect response time or result in cancellation.
  • Consider local restrictions and safety procedures before submitting, and advise the team of any requirements.
  • Please keep in mind that we will try our best to remain a reactive service, but new measures and staffing restrictions will impact our response time during this busy period.
