The Department of Health shares Quarry house in Leeds with the Department for Work and Pensions, and DWP is responsible for the property.

DWP occupies its properties, including Quarry house, under the terms of a 20-year private finance initiative contract entered into in 1998, and pays an all inclusive unitary charge. Maintenance of the swimming pool is included within the contract. The cost is not separately identifiable The pool and associated leisure centre are franchised to a separate service provider which charges for access by DWP and DH staff and a number of external public groups.
