Members of the PSA union who are party to the Allied, Public Health and Technical MECA will undertake a complete withdrawal of labour for 24 hours next week – from 11.59pm on Sunday 15 May to 11.59pm on Monday 16 May.

Patient, client, and staff safety remain our highest priority and detailed contingency planning is in place across Hutt Valley and Capital & Coast DHBs to safeguard this.

The strike does mean, however, that some outpatient appointments and planned care have been deferred and affected patients contacted accordingly.

Anyone who is unsure whether their procedure or appointment is affected should wait to be contacted or can call their clinical team.

The region’s emergency departments will remain open throughout the strike and anyone experiencing mental health crisis should call Te Haika on 0800 745 477.

For non-urgent help, please contact your GP. In an emergency, call 111.
