Coronavirus: Surrey hospital trust deaths reach 877 after 16 more confirmed

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:55pm 28th April 2020.

A total of 16 more patients being treated at NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey have died after testing positive for COVID-19.

It means there have now been 877 confirmed deaths relating to coronavirus at the five trusts with hospitals in the county.

It is not clear exactly how many of those deaths have been in Surrey, as some of the trusts also have other sites based outside of the county. NHS England only publishes figures for deaths by hospital trust.

Across England 552 more people have died in hospital after contracting the virus, bringing that total to 19,301.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 552 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 19,301.

"Patients were aged between 31 and 99 years old.

"38 of the 552 patients (aged between 36 and 99 years old) had no known underlying health condition.  

"Their families have been informed."

Figures for those having recovered from coronavirus in the UK have not been made available.

However, the Royal Surrey County Hospital has said 115 COVID-19 patients there have been discharged.

In our area Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust recorded five more virus related deaths.

Four more were confirmed at Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals, while Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals, East Surrey Hospital and the Royal Surrey saw increases of three, three and one respectively. 

The totals for NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey are as follows:

  • Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 117
  • Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust*: 227
  • Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust*: 275
  • Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust: 71
  • Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust: 187

*Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust also operates St Helier Hospital in Sutton, while Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust also runs Wexham Park Hospital in Slough and Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot.
