Brief phone outage to affect DHB facilities

Brief phone outage to affect DHB facilities

There will be a short telephone outage at several West Coast District Health Board facilities on Wednesday night. The outage is to enable an upgrade to our systems ahead of the introduction of a new telephone system later this year. The outage will affect health facilities in Buller, Reefton, Hokitika and Greymouth for between 5 -15 minutes from 11:30pm Wednesday.

If you need to phone one of these facilities at that time, and you can’t get through, wait a few minutes and try again later.

If it is an emergency, people should dial 111.
