New mobile dialysis truck to visit kidney disease patients in outback SA

Date posted: 30 January 2014

The South Australian Government says a new mobile dialysis truck will provide a better level of service to Indigenous kidney disease patients in South Australia's outback.

The $600,000 vehicle replaces one leased from the Northern Territory and was secured through Federal Government funding. The State Government says the unit is more versatile and can cover a broader area than the current mobile service and will be able to reach communities in the Flinders Ranges for the first time.

The Government is asking Indigenous communities to contribute to artwork to decorate the new truck which will hit the road in March.
