REPLY – The spa bath co-located alongside the swimming pool at the Murray Mallee Community Health Service is currently closed due to a mechanical fault. The spa area has been sealed off and a decision is pending regarding the best way to proceed with the costly and complex repairs. There have been no changes to access for the other swimming pool facilities. Currently no SA Health patients use the spa as part of a therapy plan.
