COVID-19 in numbers

Trafford Data Lab have been collecting and publishing about the coronavirus pandemic, compiled into one handy resource. Go to their website to find out more.


Hospitals are still very busy, with attendances just under the pre-COVID peak of December 2019. There are high numbers of walk-ins in emergency departments (A&E). While there are a significant number of people with multiple, complex needs, many people are arriving with less urgent and minor conditions. These could be treated at home, or following advice from a pharmacy. This is similar to the situation before COVID.

If you need medical help and aren’t sure what to do, you can contact NHS 111 first. They can even book you an appointment with a GP, at an urgent treatment centre, and at A&E.

There has been an increase in adults and children presenting with mental health issues, some in crisis. See our COVID and you page for information on mental health support.

Due to continued enhanced infection prevention control measures in hospitals, emergency departments look and feel different with more space between bays / beds, zoned areas to prevent infection and safely care for people with and without Covid-19 symptoms and limited visitor numbers.
