PainSmith Helpline 2022

As many of you who are already helpline members will be aware, PainSmith Solicitors are in the process of renewing the telephone helpline subscriptions for the upcoming year. The helpline year runs from 1st August 2022 to 31st July 2023.

In addition to telephone advice Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays from 9:00am until 5:30pm, members will also have free access to the document vault which this year we have made the decision to expand to include additional documents to assist agents in this tricky time. We have found recently that a number of members were unaware of this perk which they can access using their membership username and password through the helpline login function on our website.

The value of the documentation offered is greater than the costs of the helpline itself, below is a list of the documents included. The documents marked with an asterisk are newly included this year:

If either, you are a current member but have not yet received your renewal request or you would like to sign up for the upcoming year, please do contact instructions@painsmith.co.uk
