"Following a meeting this morning with representatives from NHS Highland, Nairn Hydrotherapy Trust and Arthritis Care’s Nairn Branch an agreement has been reached in principle which will ensure the future of the Hydrotherapy Pool for, at a minimum, the next three years.
The agreement involves four partners including NHS Highland; these are Arthritis Care’s Nairn Branch, the Nairn Hydrotherapy Trust and the community of Nairn.
Jean-Pierre Sieczkarek, NHS Highland’s Area Manager, who covers Nairn, is delighted that this has been such a positive resolution for all concerned.
He said: “We’ve been able to build on last week’s positive meeting and we’re particularly pleased for the people who will benefit from the pool in the future.
“We look forward to further discussion and working with Arthritis Care and the Nairn Hydrotherapy Trust.”
A series of meetings will now be set up to look at the referral pathway and wider use of the pool by the people of Nairn and the surrounding area."
