COVID-19 Hospital Activity

A number of data collections have been implemented to support incident management. The collections were activated at short notice and the content of the collections has evolved as the incident has developed.  The data collected is classified as management information. It has been collected on a daily basis with a tight turn round time.  No revisions have been made to the dataset. Any analysis of the data should be undertaken with this in mind.

Note that the data is collected on a daily basis, and the publications below are updated monthly, weekly and daily. The following definitions cover the data items used in all three of the following publications.

This monthly publication file provides a trust level breakdown of the five admission indicators which are provided at regional and national level each day on this page of our website. The admission indicators have been published daily since 22nd September and contain a time series which starts on 1st August and that time series is added to each day with the release of data. The indicators are derived from various data components within the daily Covid sitrep and the data for these components was deemed to be of sufficient quality from the beginning of August for such indicator construction.

Please note that the government dashboard published here https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/ includes an estimate for missing data, of 597 Covid patients for Barts, on 9th April which increases the London and national figure by that amount.  The data published here does not include any estimates for any data items for Barts for that day.
