Details

Public Health England’s (PHE’s) weekly all-cause mortality surveillance helps to detect and report significant weekly excess mortality (deaths) above normal seasonal levels. This report doesn’t assess general trends in death rates or link excess death figures to particular factors.

Excess mortality is defined as a significant number of deaths reported over that expected for a given week in the year, allowing for weekly variation in the number of deaths. PHE investigates any spikes seen which may inform public health actions.

Reports are published weekly in the winter season (October to May) and fortnightly during the summer months (June to September).

This page includes reports published from 10 October 2019 to the present.
