Hull University NHS Trust has seen the biggest increase in Covid cases between 9 November and 16 November out of all major trusts in England, according to the Government’s Covid dashboard.

The trust, which operates two hospitals, witnessed a 50% leap in the number of Covid hospital patients in the last week - despite a drop across the country as a whole.

In one week, 25 more patients have been recorded with the virus with 71 patients needing hospital care, up from 46 last week. That was an increase of 54%.

But it is University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust that had the most confirmed Covid patients as of 16 November, with 150.

Across England, the number of patients fell from 7,031 in the week to 9 November to 6,612 in the week to 16 November – a drop of 419 people, which is 6%.

The data accounts for admissions to all NHS hospitals, acute hospitals, mental health and learning disability trusts, as well as independent service providers commissioned by the NHS.

Small community or mental health trusts saw a bigger increase in Covid patients than Hull - but the number of patients in their care was fewer than 10.

In the same seven-day period, 67 out of 202 NHS trusts in England saw an increase in the number of Covid patients they care for.

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has seen the biggest decrease in the number of patients with Covid in seven days. Patients with the virus at the latest count had fallen from 160 to 124, as of 16 November.

Here are the 20 NHS trusts with the most patients in hospital as of 16 November.
