Hutt Hospital emergency department is open 24/7.

Emergency departments are for conditions that can only be treated at hospitals. Patients in most urgent need are given priority treatment with those whose need is less urgent often having to wait a long time. The emergency department triage nurse may suggest that you see your regular GP or an after-hours doctor if you do not require emergency treatment.
