Haemodialysis and hemofiltration is an intense treatment for individuals who have acute kidney disease and transplant related problems. For those who are experiencing severe loss of kidney function, the procedure filters and purifies the blood using a machine when the kidneys are unable to do their job.
South West Healthcare provides haemodialysis 6 days per week.
Treatment is prescribed by your specialist doctor (Nephrologist).
South West Healthcare has a strong partnership with tertiary health services providing collaborative care for regional patients to ensure that they can access specialist care in our community.
Referral is by specialist or GP referral to the SWH Outpatient Clinics
