Dialysis Unit

The Northern Beaches Dialysis Unit is a 12-chair ambulatory care facility for public and private patients.

Outpatient renal dialysis (haemodialysis) is our core service, with 2 sessions run each day - 7:30am and 2:00pm. We also provide inpatient and ICU haemodialysis, and inpatient peritoneal dialysis, as required.

Relationships are at the forefront of our nursing care, which is reflected in our team dynamic. Our positive, proactive nursing team is a balance of both dialysis experts and high-energy junior staff. We work together to ensure every patient receives excellent medical care and is fully-supported, whatever their needs may be.

The Dialysis Unit offers a point of difference to the community by giving patients access to a range of additional clinical services through the Hospital. In particular:

  • Allied Health professionals – Social Workers, Dieticians, and Occupational Therapists
  • Vascular Surgeons
  • Interventional Radiologists
  • imaging services
  • pathology collection.

We deliver an exceptional standard of nephrology care, which follows proven protocols for best patient outcomes. Our care includes:

  • a Consultant Nephrologist to oversee each session
  • rigorous infection control protocols that features:
    • staff hand hygiene
    • patient health monitoring/isolation
    • Influenza immunisation
    • vascular access and monitoring
  • dietary input
  • emotional support.

As a new facility, the Unit has a bright, fresh ambience, as well as a comfortable waiting room for patients. We provide:

  • new and well-maintained dialysis machines (Fresenius Haemodialysis System 5008/5008s)
  • up-to-date computer programing to deliver accurate data entry and a more stable dialysis
  • top-range dialysis chairs
  • blankets and pillows
  • a light lunch and refreshments
  • TV / entertainment package

Bring along anything you wish to make yourself comfortable (eg own pillow, blanket, book, technology device).

One support person is welcome during your session.

Treatment at the Dialysis Unit is fully-covered by Medicare for public patients. Private patients are charged via Medicare and their private health insurance.
