    Not sure if you rec’d prev. email. Quite concerned at term “total pool access”. Does this mean others can’t use pools at same time who do their own hydrotherapy? Please reply.

      Maree – I am not sure where the term ‘total pool access’ appears … but if I can respond by saying that at the moment there is no agreement with Council about pool access for the program. I do not see either pool being closed to allow the aqua-therapy program access – I would envisage it being a negotiated access whereby the heated pool (outdoor) and (indoor in special needs cases) would be made available for the program – public use would not be restrictive other that a lane rope area to identify what part of the pool area is being used by the aqua-therapy program … I hope this answers your question. Ian.
