It is with great sadness we report that thirteen patients have now died at Southport and Ormskirk hospitals.
The latest five deaths recorded across the Southport and Ormskirk Trust were included in today’s NHS England figures, but occurred between March 30-April 2. All of the families of the deceased have been informed.
The data does not make clear which hospitals the deaths occurred at. The Trust covers Southport and Formby District General Hospital and Ormskirk District General Hospital.
Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals NHS Trust declined to comment on the figures.
