Uncertainty continues to surround the future of the main building at Hutt Hospital near Wellington, and the services it provides.

The seismic rating of the Heretaunga Block is 15 per cent of the new building standard and may have to be cleared, sparking widespread concern.

Health Minister Andrew Little invited those involved in the decisions to a meeting at the Beehive on Wednesday night.
