The Federal Indigenous Health Minister Warren Snowdon says the Northern Territory Government is to blame for a lack of treatment options for kidney disease sufferers in the bush.
An ongoing fight between the Territory and Federal Governments has left 10 million dollars of Commonwealth funds unspent.
The money was set aside for accommodation of remote area renal patients travelling to regional centres, including Tennant Creek and Nhulunbuy.
Mr. Snowdon says the kidney health is getting worse in the Territory and its sad many people have to pass away from their country.
