Nocturnal dialysis

Anthony Crump is the one in ten Australians who suffer from non-reversible kidney disease.

Every second night when most people are sitting down for dinner or tucking their children into bed, Anthony swipes himself into the purpose-built Renal Home Dialysis Service and inserts a dialysis needle into his left arm, before settling in for a night of administering his own life-sustaining treatment.

The consistent monotony of the machines cut through the silence, acting as a soundtrack of his regimented evenings. Each pump taking him one step closer to health. To time spent kicking the footy with his son in the park, to a kidney transplant, to his future.

Supported by Clinical Excellence Queensland, Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service’s game changing service puts patients at the centre of their care and allows them to access treatment when and how it suits them.

In the dead of night, the hum of dialysis is Anthony’s sound of hope.
