Hi all
 
I have written a formal letter from LASG stating all the Health and Safety responsibilities etc re Latex Allergy to; Nestle, McDonalds, Boots, Phones4U, Sainsburys, Clinton Cards, B&Q, The Salvation Army, Frankie and Benny's, The Body Shop. BHS, Superdrug, Debenhams, Holland and Barrett, HMV, NEXT, Cancer Research, Waterstones, Birthdays, Dreams, NatWest, Thompson's Travel, Focus and the Children's Society and will now send letters to Thomas Cook, Comic Relief, Pizza Hut, IKEA, Edinburgh Wool Shop, Shoe Zone, Halifax Bank and Shell Garages.
 
I have had a few positive results the best being from NEXT. Some others are just sending the letter to the relevant person, so as usual that may be the bin, but we'll keep on keeping on.
 
The most disappointing has been the Olympic committee which has systematically ignored 3 contacts including one directly to Lord Coe! Very annoying, but I will keep going.  Regards to all Lesley LASG Smiley

You saw balloons in your local A&E???   That's absolutely ridiculous.   Write to your MP, make a complaint and ask to see a copy of their latex policy.
 
I did this on one occasion about 10 years ago and I got a copy of the document.   It didn't actually say anything. \just a load of blurb written by someone who quite obviously knew nothing about the subject.
 
Our local A&E now has a proper latex policy and I am in frequent touch with the health and safety officer.

Hi Bob,  
Balloons were in an area which has been made Latex free or should I say latex safe etc. I have learnt from experience that nothing is ever latex free. Even more so A and E with all the people traffic. The reason for the balloons were it was someones leaving day. Whats worse the balloons were in the Paediactric area....and the nurses do not fully understand and hide behind the fact management have said they may call the area Latex free, ehem...A complaint did go into PALS.

I saw ballons in the entrance of the hospital I work at promoting a fund raising appeal. My risk management midwife was informed and I wrote an incident form. She contacted the guy who is charge of the appeal and I am waiting to hear what he said. She was extremly sympathetic and was glad that I had pointed this out as they are having a grand opening of one of the new childrens wards which this fundraising appeal has helped equipe. So hopefully there will be no latex balloons.
Also since Wednesday I have come to the conclussion that shopping in London is an extremly dangerous past time. My young daughter had to virtually become my carer as Krispy Kreame donuts, mcdonalds and Boots all had balloons in their shops.

Hi Teresa, Andy and All
 
It just seems that we can not go near a shop but there appears to be balloons everywhere. I try to avoid shopping centres if I can as you know they are going to be there in some of the shops.
 
I try to take my business elsewhere but not easier said than done if you need to buy a big item.
 
Take care all
Teddy
 
It especially annoys me that hospitals have balloons no matter what the reason especially advertising health issues e.g. Smoking Cesation etc

Sainsburys new store in Bognor Regis had foil balloons at every paypoint but had a huge arch of latex balloons at the entrance.
 
Matalan and Tops Tiles in Bognor also currently have balloons outside their stores.
