Hospital visitors don’t need a COVID-19 Vaccine Pass, but do need to scan in. See our COVID-19 page for general COVID-19 advice, detailed hospital visiting guidelines and COVID-19 tests. See for info on vaccinations.

Passive fire defects and WOFs

Response to official information request

  1. A core question that patients and staff might like answered is: Exactly who has made the call that a WOF can be issued even though passive fire is not up to scratch? And on what basis?
  2. A list of passive fire defects identified, per building, and those buildings’ IL ratings
  3. Detail of what has been rectified
    a. and what hasn’t,
    b. and what will be (a repair timeline)
  4. So this single WOF covers all and every CDHB building?
    a. at its main campus?
    b. and at other sites?
  5. So CDHB does not need a WOF for each building, as Waikato and Counties Manukau and Auckland DHB do?
  6. Does the WOF cover buildings that were consented under the current Code, but are non-compliant with that Code? Who decided that was OK?
  7. The DHB only uses IQPs who have passed the DHB’s own tests?
  8. And that these tests include an IQP having to fix the defects on a dummy wall? Sounds innovative.
