This page is about Hutt Integrated Network of Care, an alliance of Hutt Valleys’ district health board and primary health organisations.

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.
