Hi Becky

Thank you for your enquiry.

When we produce activity reports for incidents at a particular place, we are only able to search on the name of the location. We can search for 'Gym' or 'Gymnasium' however this will only bring up locations which have those words in their name, so for example the search won't pick up incidents at Fitness First, and I am sure there are many more examples of this.

To take this forward, you could provide us with the name of each Gym, however I have looked on Yell.com and 90 gyms come up just in the Manchester area.

For the Trust to identify every gym in the North West, then run a search on each individual location, look into each incident recorded to determine call nature and the response taken would fall outside the 18 hours limit for FOIs.

Please can you let me know how you wish to progress this.
