Covid-19 hospital inpatient cases in West Yorkshire and Harrogate

Published on: 28 January 2021

Hospital trusts in West Yorkshire and Harrogate collectively release this information at 2pm on a Thursday on a weekly basis to provide the media and public with an overview of the current position within the regional and local NHS. 

There is currently a combined total of 866 patients who have tested positive for Covid-19 receiving care in our hospitals across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, with 87 patients requiring intensive care.

The number of Covid-19 patients in our hospitals continues to rise and the new strain of Covid-19 is increasingly prevalent in our communities.

Staff from across our trusts have been working exceptionally hard under these difficult circumstances to continue providing urgent care for our patients and we thank them for the incredible job that they are doing. 

As the numbers of Covid-19 patients admitted to our hospitals is increasing, it is now more important than ever that people across West Yorkshire and Harrogate keep themselves safe by washing their hands, wearing masks, social-distancing, and adhering to national Government guidance. It is only by doing this that we can make sure our local NHS can provide urgent and emergency care for all those who need it.

Emergency departments across West Yorkshire and Harrogate are currently very busy. You can help your local NHS by choosing the most appropriate service for your needs. If your condition is not life-threatening, call NHS 111 for advice on what to do next. 

Due to the significant increase in the number of Covid-19 patients admitted to our hospitals, a number of trusts have needed to postpone some non-urgent planned procedures. Each trust’s current position on planned surgery is available on individual trust websites. A daily record of patients who have died is published by NHS England

Our hospitals are among those beginning to vaccinate with the Covid-19 vaccination. If you are in a priority group eligible for vaccination, you will be contacted to book an appointment. A daily report showing the numbers of those vaccinated nationally is published here.
