Hospital trusts in West Yorkshire and Harrogate 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 60 patients who have tested positive for Covid-19 receiving care in our hospitals across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, with 9 patients requiring intensive care.

Whilst the number of Covid-19 patients admitted to our hospitals is slowly decreasing, it is still extremely important that people across West Yorkshire and Harrogate keep themselves safe by washing their hands, wearing masks, social-distancing, and adhering to national Government guidance. It is only by doing this that we can make sure our local NHS can provide urgent and emergency care for all those who need it.

If you are in a priority group eligible for vaccination, you will be contacted to book an appointment. A daily report showing the numbers of those vaccinated nationally is published on the NHS England website.

The vaccine rollout means that gradually more people are becoming protected from becoming seriously ill with Covid-19. However, it is important that people continue to adhere to national Government guidance after receiving their vaccination to help prevent spreading Covid-19 to others.

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.  

In recent weeks emergency departments across West Yorkshire and Harrogate have become increasingly busy. This has led to longer waiting times for those with less urgent issues and a call from A&E staff for the public to think very carefully before attending an emergency department.

Members of the public can help their local NHS by making sure that if they do choose to go to A&E, that it is the most appropriate place for them to receive the right care. Emergency department treatment is for accidents and emergencies only. 

Please help the NHS by choosing the most appropriate service for your needs. If your condition is not life-threatening, you can go online and visit or call 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser, who will be able to offer advice on which part of the NHS you should seek treatment, including booking an appointment for you if necessary.
