Food Poisoning Complaints:
The initial investigation into foodborne illnesses should be carried out by the Health Protection Officer at Public Health South. They will discuss food history (what has been eaten in the past few days/week), symptoms etc. If it seems likely that the illness has resulted from a particular food premsies then the Lakes Environmental Health Officer will get involved and do a joint visit to the premises.
