In April 2019, Purple House held its first-ever conference, Share a Tale at the Alice Springs Convention Centre in Alice Springs.

More than 50 delegates joined us from around Australia for this special conversation about remote dialysis, community-led healthcare and keeping culture strong. They then took the Bush Bus to Yuendumu to see remote dialysis in action.

Renal dialysis treatments in very remote areas are now funded through a new Medicare Benefits Schedule item number. As Australia’s first provider of very remote dialysis, we are proud of how we care for our patients in remote communities and excited about what this means for getting more people home to country.
