Covid-19 hospital inpatient cases in West Yorkshire and Harrogate

Published on: 19 November 2020

Hospital trusts in West Yorkshire and Harrogate will 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 1025 patients who have tested positive for Covid-19 receiving care in our hospitals across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, with 81 patients requiring intensive care.

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. 

A lot has been learned from the first wave of Covid-19, yet the only way to avoid patient admissions is to reduce the prevalence of Covid-19 in our local communities and we would ask everyone across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to keep themselves safe by washing their hands, wearing masks, social-distancing, and adhering to national Government lockdown guidance.

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.
