Planned maintenance

We have a maintenance window between 23:00 and 23:30 GMT daily. Access to our web sites and web services should be considered 'at risk' during this period.

28th March 2017 09:00 to 11:30 BST

As part of making our web sites and services more resilient we have a requirement to test full 'failover' from our primary site to our secondary site. During this testing there will be brief outages and access to our web sites and services should be considered at risk during this maintenance window.
