Request Summary: Deaths with COVID-19 noted as sole cause

Request Category: Private Individuals

Question Number 1:
I require the total number of people who died
With only Covid19 as the issue in Salisbury District Hospital from January 2020 to 3rd January 2021.
Answer To Question 1:
We are unable to answer this request as the data we collect and report on is anyone who has died having had a positive COVID result in the last 28 days. We are not able to attribute whether COVID was the sole cause of death in these patients without referring to the post mortem/coroner notes. To do this for all patients would exceed the maximum time limit for FOI requests.
