There is a growing need for hydrotherapy services across the ACT. A new hydrotherapy pool at the University of Canberra Hospital in Bruce provides better facilities than the existing pool at The Canberra Hospital, with less expected maintenance downtime and more accurate and stable temperature controls. But Arthritis ACT are concerned that when the Canberra Hospital hydrotherapy pool closes in July, southside residents will find it harder to access the new facilities on the northside. They have a petition asking the ACT Government to keep the existing hydrotherapy pool open and maintained until a new dedicated pool is built on the south side of Canberra.
