ABOUT THE COMPANY

Capital and Coast DHB (CCDHB) is located centrally in Wellington and has the equivalent of around 4,300 full time staff, making us a major employer in the Wellington region. CCDHB operates two hospitals – Wellington Regional Hospital in Newtown and Kenepuru Hospital in Porirua – as well as the Kapiti Health Centre at Paraparaumu.

TWOM has a team of highly skilled psychiatrists, nurses and allied health staff providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment for adults with serious mental illness and severe psychological disorders. They work in collaboration with the service user, their family/whanau and the community clinical teams to promote recovery.
