UK shared bank branches to be tested at post offices

To guarantee access to cash, post offices in several small British towns are preparing to welcome bank branches to which teams from major British banks will take turns.

The British state-owned Post Office already offered services such as cash withdrawals and deposits.

It is an original remedy against banking desertification that the United Kingdom is preparing to test: the post offices of several small towns are preparing to welcome bank branches that will be shared by the big British banks.

In concrete terms, Lloyds Banking Group customers can, for example, be received on Mondays, those of HSBC on Tuesday, Santander on Wednesday and Barclays on Thursday, each time by teams seconded by each bank. They will be able to check their balance, deposit and withdraw cash or deposit checks.
