Robertson House

Just to confirm (in case you hadn’t worked it out) but Robertson House was open today and it was business as normal. Thanks

Robertson House closed

Please be advised that Robertson House is closed today due to an internal power outage. Support staff (such as the HICS Service Desk) will be working remotely but there are problems accessing Sunrise and all phone calls are being diverted to a voicemail message. Emails however are still being picked up.
