The Māori Health Unit

Please note that as of April 2, 2020, we have an updated tangihanga process due to Covid-19. Please see this simple chart for further information.

The Māori Health Development Unit provides support and advice and is committed to ensuring strong links and relationships are developed and maintained, both within the hospital provider services, Primary Care providers and in the wider community.

The Family Support Coordinators and Mental Health and Addictions Service Community Liaison Māori provides links and networking services to Community Social Services and Primary Health sector where appropriate.

In July 2019, we launched Te Pae Amorangi - the Hutt Valley DHB Māori Health Strategy. The strategy sets out our goal of achieving Māori health equity.
