Laura Fergusson closure: Disabled community upset at loss of hydrotherapy pool and specialised gym

From Morning Report, 8:39 am on 24 September 2020

The closure of a hydrotherapy pool and specialised gym has left some in Auckland's disabled community with nowhere to go.

The Laura Fergusson Rehabilitation centre in Greenlane was always set to close in August, but has been shut since the first lockdown in March.

Disabled clients says they were promised a switch to suitable pools and gyms, but have recieved nothing more than pro-forma letter listing standard facilities.
