Te Whatu Ora Capital, Coast & Hutt Valley continues to work closely with Wellington Water and other potentially-impacted agencies to understand what effect – if any – local water restrictions may have on our hospitals and services.

These restrictions apply to Porirua, Wellington, and the Hutt Valley. Kapiti and the Wairarapa are not affected.

As we have at least seven days of water in storage at any given time, we do not expect to experience any meaningful disruption to our services or patient care under the current or anticipated restriction levels. We also have a range of processes and options – such as water-free hygiene products – to help us to conserve water should this be needed.

We are closely monitoring the situation, and working with our partner agencies, so that people and whānau across our communities can remain confident that they will continue to receive safe care and support across our services and hospitals.

We will provide further updates on our websites as developments progress.
