COVID update


Due to the increase in spread of COVID-19 in the community, the decision has been made to cancel the first locations of 2022 at Coffs Harbour and Phillip Island. We will also be postponing the opening of bookings for the remaining locations for the immediate time.

We will continue to meet with our clinical partners to determine a safe time to resume the service and open the bookings.

This decision has been made to ensure the safety of the staff and Bus users and we appreciate your patience during this time.

Should you wish to speak to a Kidney Health Australia staff member regarding the Big Red Kidney Bus Program, please feel free to give us a call on 1800 454 363 (option 3).

Making long awaited holidays happen

“Planning is a big part of travelling whilst on dialysis and using the Big Red Kidney Bus makes planning for trips so much easier. It is so simple to go online to see the bus locations and to book through the Kidney Health Australia website. I can’t express enough how great this facility is! The staff are excellent and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and even introduce you to fellow Bus users." - Stephen
