Dialysis patients should organise their own treatment in the same way they would normally do when taking a holiday.
To arrange for dialys in the Public Sector contact Leanne Avis on 0403 368 284. Leanne is the Dialysis Coordinator at the John Hunter Hospital.
Insurance cover during the Games
All registered participants will be covered whilst attending the Games under the Public Liabilty and Sports Insurance Policy that has been taken out by Transplant Australia Ltd. This does not cover travel, accommodation and medical or personal costs.
Travel Insurance for recipients and family members
A comprehensive travel insurance policy that includes medical cover for both recipients and accompanying persons is now available through Chartis Travel Insurance.
Transplant members will receive a 30% discount on the normal travel insurance cost but there is a one-up assessment fee (only for recipients) that receive approval from Chartis for travel insurance. Details of this will be provided by Chartis when applying for the insurance.
To obtain the insurance you will need to quote your membership number. You can obtain this by logging in to http://www.transplant.org.au/ and clicking on membership.
Once your policy is in place it can also be used for any other travel undertaken by financial Transplant Australia members.
