The Hutt Valley Service Coordination Centre (HVSCC) has been contracted by the Hutt Valley District Health Board (HVDHB) since 2007.

The Centre is contracted to provide a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) role for the > 65year population in the Hutt Valley catchment area.

The service facilitates access to DHB funded:

  • Home based supports for over 65 year olds
  • Respite care in aged care facilities and in the community
  • Aged residential care
  • Long term supports - Chronic health condition (LTS-CHC) supports for people under 65 with a chronic health condition and a very high need.

Following receipt of a referral, phone contact is made, and then an assessment may be carried out over the phone, or face to face, using one of the interRAI assessment tools.

HVDHB funded services to support the governments “Aging in Place” strategy, and address the health needs identified on the assessment may then be allocated. Access criteria apply for some services.

In addition to allocating DHB funded supports, our Care Managers are able to point clients and their families to other supports services within the community (some of these may be self funded). To allow our staff to best know the community in which their clients live, they each cover a defined geographical area.
