Chairs bring fresh hope to sufferers

Earlier this month, the Federal Government announced a $56.3 million funding package to boost services for people suffering from chronic kidney disease in regional Western Australia.

For Leonora-born Bruce Polak, the addition of seven new dialysis chairs to Kalgoorlie Hospital could allow members of his family to return to the Goldfields.

Under the funding, Kalgoorlie Hospital will receive the new chairs, as well as, a 19-bed hostel for patients to stay in while receiving treatment at the health campus.

Esperance Hospital will also receive two dialysis chairs for the first time.

With 700 Goldfields residents suffering from chronic kidney disease, the new chairs are a welcome boost to local services.
