THE future of Wagga’s hydrotherapy continues to be in doubt, with Wagga Base Hospital general manager Denis Thomas refusing to confirm the future of the pool.
User group members were invited to a meeting on Wednesday, where they were told the pool would continue to be run on a “cost recovery basis” for the time being.
President of Wagga’s Arthritis Association Lorraine Thomas was concerned about the future of the pool and the price users were currently being forced to pay.
Pool advocate Karenne Conners wanted a final decision to be made, questioning what “suitable therapeutic facilities” would be available should the pool close.
Mr Thomas said usage continued to be low.
“Consideration is still being given to alternative hydrotherapy and warm water therapy services available in Wagga, prior to any final decision being made.”
