SHARE A TALE | Dawn from Northern Queensland PHN has had the opportunity to participate in the The Purple House's Share A Tale conference held in Alice Springs this week.

Share A Tale provides a forum for a special conversation about remote dialysis, community-led healthcare, and keeping culture strong.

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, The Purple House are proud of how they care for their patients in remote communities and are excited about what this means for getting more people home to country.

Dawn is pictured with Purple House CEO Sarah Brown in front of the Purple Truck.
