Welcome | Haere mai

This website is for everyone in Hawke's Bay looking for health information and advice. Hawke's Bay District Health Board and Health Hawke's Bay PHO work together to offer comprehensive health information and advice for our Hawke's Bay communities on this website.

Due to COVID-19 and the extra demands on health service staff, it may take longer than usual for us to respond queries, and we have made some changes to our policies and our services. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
