Announcement of COVID related deaths - Friday 22 May

Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is currently treating patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Sadly, we can confirm that 246 patients who were being cared for at our hospitals, and had tested positive for COVID-19, have died.

One of those have been announced today (Friday 22 May).

The patients whose deaths have been announced so far were aged between 41 and 100.

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


  • The Trust will not be giving out any further information on these patients.
  • The media are asked to respect the wishes of the families, and the interests of staff at the hospital to avoid any disruption to operational services
