I am in Australia and have been on dialysis for over 20 years.
Feel free to ask questions about dialysis in Australia.

Welcome. Is in-center treatment common?  So if I wanted to visit Australia would I be able to schedule in-center treatments?  Thanks.

I read on the travel section of this site that your neighbor New Zeland does in-home treatments so they don't offer holiday dialysis.

Hi  :welcomesign;  Good to see another "old timer"  :beer1;  My hubby has been on dialysis for over 18 years.  Do you do incenter or home hemo?  I'm guessing home hemo from what I know about Australia

Holiday in centre treatment is available.
I attend a hemodialysis unit that is quite new.
