Dialysis

The Dialysis Service at West Wimmera Health Service comprises six Dialysis units. It enables people who experience a kidney malfunction to receive vital treatment which may be required several times a week.

The Dialysis Service is a boon for local residents who previously had to travel long distances to receive treatment. It also provides an essential service for visitors to the region who regularly need dialysis and have to plan the continuation of that treatment when they away from home. Dialysis sessions can last several hours during which time a patient's blood is treated to remove excess fluid and waste.
