Latest Wiltshire COVID-19 cases

Latest Wiltshire COVID-19 cases

Wiltshire has seen 2,222 confirmed positive cases in the last seven days, a slight drop from last week. The rate of cases per 100,000 in Wiltshire has decreased from 477.9 last week to 2,222, which continues to be higher than the current case rate in England of 252.2 (gov.uk data as of 17/11/2021 at 1:10pm).

The number of positive cases continue to go in the right direction but COVID-19 is still in circulation in high numbers in Wiltshire and it’s vital that we all play our part to help reduce the case numbers across the county.

There are steps we can all take to protect one another and help to drive the case numbers down.

Please keep washing your hands regularly or sanitising them, and consider meeting others outside or open doors and windows when indoors with others. Also, please get your first and second dose of the vaccine when offered, continue to choose to wear face coverings when out and about and on public transport, and if you have COVID symptoms, please book a test and self-isolate immediately.

Hospital Liaison Service

The Hospital Liaison Service will work with hospital staff and others to identify and support carers through the discharge process.

The Carer Support Hospital Liaison Service will:

  • support carers while they or their cared for are in hospital;
  • assist with planning and implementation of discharge; and,
  • follow up with carers after discharge.

The aim of the service is to reduce carer stress, reduce re-admission rates and help ease the burden on hospitals over the winter months and while the Covid pandemic is placing increased demands on the NHS.

The new service is made up of 2 teams – the Hospital Liaison Team which will be the point of contact for carers and Hospital staff; and the Hospital Support Team which will carry out initial assessments and provide support.

Carers and hospital staff can contact our Hospital Liaison Team on 0800 368 7579. Hospital staff can also make referrals using the secure CSW.admin@nhs.net email address. The service is being promoted at Great Western Hospital, Royal United Hospital, Salisbury District Hospital and Community Hospitals.
