The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is currently treating patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Sadly we can confirm that 169 patients being cared for at our hospitals, and who had tested positive for COVID-19, have died. One death was announced today.

Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and friends of those patients at this very difficult and distressing time.

Background

  • The Trust will not be giving out any further information on these patients.
  • The media are asked to respect the wishes of families, and the interests of staff at the hospital to avoid any disruption to operational services.
  • The number of reported deaths may be higher on a Monday as figures are not updated daily at the weekend.
