How is my local Hospital doing in terms of COVID patients and overall utilisation? 👇🏼
Take a look at the below chart.
👀 It shows the Top 30 hospital trusts from a COVID-related Admissions/Diagnoses perspective over the last 10 days of reporting (2-11th Oct).
Want to know how YOUR LOCAL hospital is faring❓
👇🏼 Keep scrolling, where we show all 157 Hospital Trusts in England that have had any new COVID cases in the last 10 days.
🤫 There are 495 Hospital Trusts in England, meaning 68% of Trusts have had no new COVID cases in the last 10 days.
GIVE ME SOME CONTEXT:
🏨 Liverpool & Manchester Hospitals have been in the news over the last week, due to influx in new patients and concerns of being overwhelmed in the near future.
👁 So, we’ve done the heavy lifting for these two Trusts to show their current situation and how it compares to 2019 Oct-Dec daily average.
🧘🏼♀️The sceptic in me, based on the data, says that there is nothing to see here. Yes, they are heavily utilised – but both are below daily average for this time of the year and high utilisation is a norm.
👌🏼 Hospitals plan to hit the ~90% utilisation mark in peak seasons (Oct-Mar) for operational efficiencies. One could argue they have very little buffer… that’s not a function of the COVID crisis, but general NHS operations and budgets.
