To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the range and number of NHS hydrotherapy pools available to NHS patients; whether pools are available in all regions in England; and to what extent existing public or private pools are available for the use of NHS patients.

The department does not collect data centrally on the availability of hydrotherapy treatment pools in England.

National Health Service organisations will decide locally on the provision of hydrotherapy pools based on the clinical needs of their patients. The decision will be informed by their strategies for responding to those needs and the local availability of hydrotherapy pools, both public and private.
