South Bank BID Services 

With so much of South Bank shut down, we wanted to reassure you that for now our core services remain in place. This includes South Bank Clean Team, our security work through South Bank Patrol and our dedicated Metropolitan Police Officers.

However, as the Covid-19 situation continues to change on a daily basis and as we are operating with significant uncertainty, all aspects of our approach need to be continually reviewed in line with government policy.

One area of South Bank experiencing unprecedented demand is St Thomas’ Hospital. South Bank BID is discussing the current situation at the hospital with the management team on a regular basis and finding ways to help staff through this crisis in any way we can.

Statements from the BID

We will link below to all of the latest updates on the work the BID is doing behind the scenes, both to provide relief during the current situation, while also looking towards the point of recovery and what can be done to ensure South Bank bounces back as quick as possible.
