UK team remote working & Oman projects putting additional safety measures in place

In line with ongoing UK Government guidance, we have temporarily closed our UK offices and our team are working remotely.

This means that we are open for business, but not from our usual office.

Please contact us by email if you have any queries.

Our projects in Oman are following local Government advice and putting additional health and safety measures in place as required.

We are ready, willing and able to help and offer support during the WHO Covid-19 pandemic and now more than ever, our 40 years of experience in leading healthcare worldwide, matters.

We, like so many, offer our thanks and appreciation to all key workers.

Wishing all our employees, clients, consultants, stakeholders and their families well at this challenging time.


In support of the global effort to control the Coronavirus, IHG will be strictly following advice from Chinese, UK and relevant international authorities.

The specific impact of this advice on our China operations is as follows:

  • Our Shanghai office will remain closed until at least 10th February 2020.
  • All physical meetings in China (both internal and external) have been canceled until at least the end of February. Our focus will be on communication via voice and video calls.
  • Travel, by any international based IHG staff, to China has been suspended. There are currently no international staff in Shanghai but they remain available to manage and support remotely. This will be reviewed at the end February at the earliest.

It is not clear at this time what the impact will be on our capability or response times but we will do our best to continue to provide a high quality service while prioritising the health and well-being of our, suppliers, our staff, our clients and their families.
