Mario Mazzocchi, Wesleyan Chief Executive said:
 
"Many of our customers are involved directly in dealing with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and we want to show our absolute support and loyalty to them at this difficult time. That is why we have put together this package of support to, not only protect their financial wellbeing, but also their physical and mental health.

"We have heard from many people across the medical profession who tell us of the unbearable pressures that this pandemic is causing. We hope that the support we can offer will help to ease some of the pressures brought on by COVID-19." 

Prof Pali Hungin, Wesleyan Advisory Board member and former President of the British Medical Association, said:

"The impact of dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak will have a long-lasting effect on many people in the health service, and other key workers, who are working in such an intense and pressured environment. The support offered by Wesleyan could provide a valuable life-line for some colleagues to help them process what they are going through."
