NHS England release the COVID-19 Hospital Activity data. This is classified as management information.

No revisions have been made to the dataset. Where known errors have come to light, trusts have corrected them in the following day’s data. Please keep this in mind when analysing the data.

The publication covers:

  • the number of patients in hospital with COVID-19 including those in mechanical ventilation
  • the number of patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19
  • the number of patients diagnosed in hospital with COVID-19
  • the number of patients discharged from hospital
  • staffing absences

Please note: the data provided is broken down to Hospital Trust rather than Local Authority Area.

For Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly the Trusts include:

  • Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

However some residents from Cornwall, mainly in the North and East of the County, are treated in neighbouring hospitals. These are:

  • University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust
  • Royal Devon And Exeter NHS Foundation Trust
  • Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust

and so figures may include people who usually live in Cornwall.

This includes:

  • numbers of people tested
