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.
