Federation advises police officers to keep two metres social distance at all times or wear protective masks
During the last week we have seen conflicting advice issued to police officers by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) about the use of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), based on information and advice it has received from Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Please be aware we’re receiving an exceptional volume of customer enquiries, which we are responding to as quickly as we can. Unfortunately, we cannot respond to all of these calls directly, so please check our Q&A below.
ABTA Members are doing their best to manage arrangements for customers. If your trip is not imminent, your travel company may not be in touch with you right away. Our advice is to keep trying, though please do be patient.
Please be reassured during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation we will be handling Sickness Benefit Claims as a priority to ensure there is no undue delay in issuing benefit payments for members. We are hoping to maintain our usual service standards for these specific claims (turnaround within 3 – 5 working days). Members should be mindful that outstanding documentation will not be chased and it is therefore important to ensure the relevant signed paperwork is emailed in good time for payment to be made in the usual timeframes.
As a consequence of the continued spread of the Coronavirus, Medical Solutions has experienced an unprecedented sharp increase in demand for GP consultations and associated call volumes, which has led to extended wait times for GP appointments. Whilst we have increased our capacity as much as possible to keep delays to a minimum, inevitably we anticipate that there will be longer wait times than normal due to concerns about Coronavirus. We appreciate your understanding and support as we seek to manage this increased demand.
You should follow advice given by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and local or UK health authorities. Where you have a query that relates to your travel plans, you must contact your tour operator, airline, accommodation provider or other travel companies to discuss options such as refunds, amendments or postponements.

It is not a public body and not funded by the public and is the only staff association to be subject to Freedom of Information (FoI), which came into effect for the PFEW in April 2017.
