Dear Vincent Santiago
Re: Freedom of Information Request
I refer to your request for information pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“the
Act”) dated 3 April 2021.
Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (“the Trust”) can advise that we do
hold the information that you have requested. The Trust’s response is:
1. How many people have died in your hospitals from covid 19 and only due to covid 19? I
have seen the figures you publish online, but these are deaths within 28 days of a positive
covid test, so they could have died from other causes. I just want to know the exact figures
from 1st February 2020 to 3rd April 2021 for death due to covid 19 alone.
There have been 79 deaths with covid.
There have been 2 deaths from covid alone.
2. The Number and Percentage of people with ‘underlying health conditions’ in the overall
79 and 97.53%
3. The Number and Percentage of those without ‘underlying health conditions’.
2 and 2.47% respectively.
It is confirmed that as the information has been provided, this request is now closed.
For future reference, the Trust’s publication scheme and details of the services that we provide
can be found on our website: www.bhamcommunity.nhs.uk.
