Answered on

DERBARL YERRIGAN HEALTH SERVICE — RENAL DIALYSIS ACCOMMODATION

194. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Health:

I refer to the recent decision by the Derbarl Yerrigan Health Service to walk away from its Elizabeth Hansen Autumn Centre accommodation facility for visiting renal patients from the Kimberley and the Pilbara.

(1) What options are available for visiting patients who need accommodation for renal dialysis purposes?

(2) How will the government respond to providing accommodation for patients who travel from these regions to Perth?

(3) How will the government ensure that any alternative accommodation options for these patients will be culturally appropriate?

Hon ALANNA CLOHESY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

Further time is required to answer this question. The information will be provided to the member as soon as it is available.
