Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) receives funding to improve, promote and protect the health of around 300,000 people in:
- Wellington City and its suburbs
- parts of the Kapiti Coast such as Waikanae.
We are also the leading provider of a number of specialist services, including neurosurgery, oncology, neonatal intensive care, and specialised mental health services, for the upper South and lower North Islands, a population of about 900,000 people.
CCDHB has the equivalent of around 4,300 full time staff, making us a major employer in the Wellington region.
Our district health board is the sixth largest in New Zealand and has an annual budget of more than $1 billion, which we use to deliver health services directly and to contract external providers, such as general practices, rest homes and pharmacists, to provide care.
