APY lands to get mobile dialysis service

Date posted: 13 September 2011

An Aboriginal women's group says mobile dialysis trials to begin soon in South Australia's remote Aboriginal lands are a step in the right direction. A federal study released in June recommended renal dialysis services be set up in remote communities in the long term and mobile services be made available in the interim.

The South Australian Government says planning has begun for a mobile service trial at Ernabella and Indulkana and should begin in October 2011. The Northern Territory and West Australian Governments already have permanent dialysis services in some remote Aboriginal communities.
