Which? comments on RBS branch closures

Gareth Shaw, Which? Money Expert, said:

“This is another blow to RBS customers who have already endured a spate of branch closures and will bring the total number of closures or planned closures across all banks to more than 700 this year.

“Our analysis has revealed that more than 60 branches a month are shutting their doors, potentially leaving customers struggling to access vital financial services. It’s crucial that banks consult with their customers to ensure their needs are met before simply shutting their doors and their customers out.”

Notes to editor
The 700 bank branch closure figure consists of closed branches since Jan 2018, as well as branches that are scheduled to close in 2018.
