The HSBC bank branch in Field End Road, Eastcote, has officially closed today (Friday).

The National Federation of SubPostmasters confirmed the closure but provided the three nearest Post Offices which will offer similar services.

  • Eastcote PO, 145-147 Field End Road, Pinner, HA5 1QL
  • Whitby Road PO, 161 Whitby Road, Ruislip, HA49EB
  • Ruislip Manor PO, 91 Victoria Road, Ruislip, HA4 9BH

It said each of the branches offer banking services including deposits, free cash withdrawals and balance checks.

They will also be offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and postal services.

There are currently 2,000 free-to-use ATMs installed across the UK Post Office network also.

The NFSP said: "Post Offices are proving vital to retaining people’s and business’s access to cash as the banks continue to desert the high street in order to cut costs and increase their profits.

"Every Post Office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community.

"Post Offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic."
