New Plan For Better Kidney Care In Territory

NT Government

Every Territorian deserves access to the best care and treatment choices.

The Lawler Labor Government has launched a new plan today to provide more treatment choices in kidney care for Territorians living with kidney disease.

The NT Health Kidney Plan 2024 – 2029 was developed through extensive consultation and engagement with those who provide and receive kidney care, including Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations.

The Plan will be implemented over the next five years and aims to create a shift toward more community-based care for kidney treatment in local communities, including at regional healthcare centres and in the home.

To achieve this, the Plan will initiate pilot programs for community based kidney workforce development. The programs will provide training in a range of areas to support people in the local community who are living with kidney disease.

Through building this specialised workforce in community settings, the capacity to offer diverse forms of support for people living with kidney disease will increase, including greater access to clinical and allied health assistance. The roles will be focussed around hubs that actively promote health education and assist people to navigate the care options available to them.
