Does anyone know which agency/department is the right place to make a complaint regarding health & safety concerns about a local authority leisure centre? I would have thought environmental health but that seems to only deal with food hygiene issues. Thank you!

Check out the website for the local authority ?

Thanks Cougie, checking through now but it's a nightmare trying to find anything remotely relevant. I think they purposefully designed their website to be as user unfriendly as possible.

You should go to the manager to be fair, going anywhere else deprives them of the chance to react to your concerns. If it's serious and you get no joy, go straight to the HSE, but it comes with a whole pile of trouble for the local management

  • piss
  • sweat
  • skin

What are you doing hanging out with the chavs at a local authority leisure centre?

I felt dirty just getting into the pool when I once went to my local one. Im sure I was the only one without tattoos either.

I haven't been swimming in leisure centre pool for years. I used to work at quite a swanky gym and that pool was disgusting too!

Seren, I know - but website doesn't have an option that would cover "this leisure centre is making its customers skin fall off, I want to report it"

I'll give them a ring

I thought it might be like food poisoning - you should report it to council as well as establishment?

Tattoos.

Of an age where the only people who had them were either in the Navy or the nick.

Then there's those Russian prisoners who have just a small star  tattooed on each knee-cap.

Means rather than yield to another man they'll prefer death. Scary.

Do they have a "contact us" or "make a complaint" link on their website?

if not i'd telephone their contact centre and ask who their Head of Service / Director is for Leisure Serives and their contact dtails.

My local council has a department called Leisure and Cultural Services; I think that'd be the one.

Thanks K80 and literatin!

It's suspected MRSA (waiting for test result to 100% confirm) following a sports massage. I think that goes beyond having a quiet word with the manager.

MRSA from a leisure centre ??

Sounds like a right shit hole?

Surely walking in the door was a sign to turn round
