Greater Wellington
COVID-19 Hub

This website is a collaboration of the health lead agencies responding to COVID-19 in the Greater Wellington region - Capital & Coast DHB, Hutt Valley DHB, Wairarapa DHB, and Regional Public Health.

To respond effectively to COVID-19, DHB teams work closely with a wide range of partners, including Primary Health Organisations, Māori, Pacific and disability providers, GPs and the local pharmacy network. Together we are working to provide vaccination and testing services across the region and to ensure that people are provided with the health and welfare support they require to safely isolate in the community – preserving their health and protecting their communities.

The District Health Boards (DHB) are government-funded organisations and are responsible for planning, funding and providing healthcare and disability support services and are the lead agencies in the health response to COVID-19. 

Capital & Coast DHB (CCDHB) is located centrally in Wellington and covers the region from just south of Ōtaki through Porirua and Wellington City.

CCDHB operates two hospitals – Wellington Regional Hospital in Newtown and Kenepuru Hospital in Porirua – as well as the Kāpiti Health Centre at Paraparaumu.

CCDHB provides a range of specialist services including neurosurgery, oncology, neonatal intensive care and community-based services including district nursing, rehabilitation services, social work, alcohol and drug services, and home support services to a population of around 900,000 people.

CCDHB is a pro-equity health organisation, with a particular focus on Māori and Pacific Peoples.

Regional Public Health (RPH) is a sub-regional public health service, working with communities across the Greater Wellington region, alongside our three District Health Boards (DHBs), Capital & Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa.

RPH works with communities to make them healthier, safer places to live. They promote good health, prevent disease, and improve the quality of life for our population, with a particular focus on children, Māori and Pacific populations.

Much of the work in public health is behind the scenes ensuring a healthy and safe environment for our population, including influencing policy, writing submissions, enforcing health legislation and working with other agencies to improve access to services and resources.
