If you need to travel due to relocation or an unplanned trip, we can help you find dialysis units within Australia.
If you are thinking of organising holiday dialysis elsewhere in Australia at present, please be aware that many dialysis units are not accepting holiday dialysis patients due to high demand on the health service. This affects residents of Australia travelling interstate or internationally and also overseas visitors coming to Australia. Unfortunately, Kidney Health Australia is not able to make bookings on behalf of patients as you need to contact the units directly to establish whether they are providing this service. Our Dialysis Unit Guide can assist you to locate a unit, please refer to the information below. And of course, please remember our Big Red Kidney Bus is offering holiday dialysis in NSW and Victoria at a number of different locations until the end of the year.
While there are options and resources available, be sure to plan carefully following these steps:
You can check whether there’s a dialysis unit near your travel destination by using our Australian Dialysis Unit Guide. It can be used for referrals, when relocating, or to arrange short-term dialysis treatment across Australia. It also includes information on home dialysis clinics and children’s hospitals, as well as provide directions through Google maps.
The Guide was inspired and pioneered by a dedicated volunteer, Graham Herbert, who passed away in 2012. Thank you, Graham.
