History


The Capital and Coast District Health Board, like most other district health boards, came into effect on 1 January 2001 established by the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000.[3]

Geographic area


The area covered by the Capital and Coast District Health Board is defined in Schedule 1 of the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000 and based on territorial authority and ward boundaries as constituted as at 1 January 2001.[4] The area can be adjusted through an Order in Council.[5]

Facilities


The Wellington Regional Hospital located in Newtown is the largest of the CCDHB's facilities, serving the wider Wellington region and the northern South Island. Other facilities include the Wellington Children's Hospital, the Kenepuru Community Hospital in Porirua and the Kapiti Health Centre.[6]

Governance


The initial board was fully appointed. Since the 2001 local elections, the board has been partially elected (seven members) and in addition, up to four members get appointed by the Minister of Health. The minister also appoints the chairperson and deputy-chair from the pool of eleven board members.[7]
