Transport is a key concern for patients needing to travel to dialysis treatment - whether it be access to taxi subsidies, availability of bus services, reliance on family and friends, or cost of petrol for cars - getting to dialysis can be a real struggle. Skyrocketing petrol prices are having a devastating impact, particularly for those patients who live in regional and rural areas where access to dialysis units is limited.

Home Dialysis has many advantages and can significantly improve rehabilitation and length of survival. It currently costs Government an average of $60,000 a year for just one patient to dialyse. If this patient is supported and encouraged to move to home dialysis, this cost is cut by a third, down to $40,000. Give us your thoughts....

Organ transplantation funding a major boost for Kidney patients - around 60% of all organ transplants carried out in Australia relate to the kidney. This strategy and funding by Federal Government to improve organ donation provides a major boost for Kidney Patients forced to wait an average of four to six years on dialysis for a transplant.
