Official Opening of Lajamanu Regional Dialysis Unit

The Lajamanu Regional Dialysis Unit was officially opened on Thursday 29th of August 2013. It was an incredible day with many members of the community of Lajamanu as well as folks from Yuendumu, Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs attending to join the celebrations. The Lajamanu Dialysis Unit commenced provision of dialysis services on 27th May 2013 and in that time has provided 13 clients with dialysis on community. The official opening gave patients, the community and all the supporters who contributed to the establishment of the unit an opportunity to celebrate renal patients safely being at home on country and to acknowledge the hard work that has gone in to this achievement.

The day included a BBQ cook up of ribs and sausages, roo tails and damper on the fire, platters of fruit and of course a special cake. The talented North Tanami Band provided entertainment in addition to a traditional dance performance by local women. The crowd was greatly impressed with the performances. A number of speakers including Lajamanu Regional Dialysis Committee Chair (and Renal Patient) Helen Morris, WDNWPT Director Marilyn Nungala, patients, family and the CEO of WDNWPT Sarah Brown, spoke to commend this achievement and thank the Aboriginal Benefits Account (ABA), Kurra, the Lajamanu Progress Association and the Northern Territory Government for their support of the project. The efforts of the WDNWPT Lajamanu team of Dialysis Nurses Noeline Murray and Chris Harris, Project Manager Nikki Pearce, Patient Support Worker Heather Hall and Indigenous Cultural Advisor and Patient Mentor Lachlan Ross in establishing the unit, provision of services and coordinating such a successful event was also commended.
