We are at ORANGE according to the NZ COVID-19 Protection Framework.  Protect yourself and our community by getting boosted, wearing a mask when out and about and reducing contact with others. Hospital visitors don’t need a Vaccine Pass, but must wear a surgical/medical paper mask. Fabric face coverings are no longer acceptable.  See our COVID-19 page for general COVID-19 advice, detailed hospital visiting guidelines and COVID-19 tests.

Information for suppliers

The West Coast DHB works with a range of suppliers to deliver health services to the region.

As a government organisation, our suppliers are expected to comply with the Supplier Code of Conduct (PDF, 40KB)

We do our best to ensure that suppliers are paid on time. You can help us avoid delays in making payment by following these guidelines:

  • All invoices must include a valid purchase order number.
  • Invoices should clearly detail the goods or services provided and match the purchase order and what was delivered – any inconsistencies between what was delivered, the purchase order and the invoice could result in delayed payment.

If an invoice is received without a purchase order number, we will be unable to process this and the invoice will be returned to you. You will then need to contact the requestor to get a purchase order and then re-issue the invoice.

We prefer to receive invoices electronically. Please send your invoices to our accounts team at:
