More than 20 000 Australians currently need dialysis. In the past most people on dialysis would have to spend hours at hospital hooked up to machines -but not anymore.

Dr Aron Chakera from Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital has been granted funding to start a 'hospital in the home' program, aiming to get more patients dialysing at home instead of in the hospital.
