Work is well underway for the completion of our hydrotherapy pool set in the grounds of the Merlin MS Centre. We estimate building work to be complete by November this year. Once the builders have handed over the building we will still need to work on the internal space, but it should be available for our service users by the end of the year.
The pool will be used by our physiotherapists to provide specialist hydrotherapy sessions to Merlin MS Centre service users as part of their existing physiotherapy sessions.
The building work will take place in two phases, the first to complete the build of the pool, changing rooms, toilets, reception area and office. The intention is to build phase two as finances allow.
We anticipate approximately 3,200 individual hydrotherapy treatments taking place each year. The incredibly generous £1mil donation from lottery winner, Peter Congdon, has made this possible. However, we will still need to raise additional money to purchase specialist hydrotherapy equipment.
