Hutt Incorporated (Hutt Inc) helps make sure that people in the Hutt Valley have better healthcare with primary and secondary health services which work well together.

Hutt Inc was formed in 2013 with an Alliance Agreement between Hutt Valley District Health Board and the Hutt Valley’s primary health organisations Cosine Primary Care Network Trust and Te Awakairangi Health Trust Board.
