  • People like 23-year-old Grant, who needs dialysis three times a week, can go on a holiday every once in a while thanks to our mobile dialysis service—the Big Red Kidney Bus.

Kidney Kids Camp

Big Red Kidney Bus

Dialysis--where the blood is extracted and cleaned--can be required up to three or four times a week, and takes hours and hours at a time, which makes going on holiday’s incredibly difficult. Our Big Red Kidney Bus provides a mobile haemodialysis service, allowing those who require haemodialysis the chance to have a holiday whilst still receiving treatment.

The buses travel to popular holiday destinations across Victoria and NSW, where they are located for up to six weeks at a time, staffed by experienced dialysis nurses and renal technicians.
