Lower Hutt mayor concerned after hospital building closure

From Morning Report, 7:13 am on 18 May 2022

The mayor of Lower Hutt fears some services will never resume at Hutt Hospital once a major building is out of action.

The latest assessment shows the Heretaunga Block is earthquake prone. Patients and services will be moved out of the block as a result.

Mayor Campbell Barry says he needs a commitment all services will return once remediation work is complete.


He spoke to Susie Ferguson.
