Transplant Australia representatives met the wonderful hospital staff, healthcare professionals and representatives from DonateLife, and checked out the Big Red Kidney Bus – part of Kidney Health Australia‘s award-winning program which provides a mobile haemodialysis service, allowing those who require haemodialysis the chance to have a holiday whilst still receiving treatment.
By working together, our goal is to make sure that every Australian who needs dialysis, or who needs a transplant, has access to one.
Currently, there are around 12,000 people who need dialysis treatment, and over 1,400 people on the waiting list.
Australia – all you need is your Medicare number to add your name to the Australian Organ Donor Register at donatelife.gov.au 😀 It takes 2 minutes, and could one day save lives. #MakeItCount
