"The festive period and the early days of the new year have been hugely challenging for us at OUH with an exponential rise in the number of COVID positive patients admitted to our hospitals. The number of COVID positive inpatients at OUH increased from 88 on 18 December to 261 by last Wednesday 6 January.
"We would like to thank all staff who have pulled together and shown great flexibility as clinical areas have been converted for use with COVID positive patients and staff have been redeployed in some cases as part of our OneTeamOneOUH response."
Dialysis patients under the care of OUH were the very first people in the world to receive the Oxford AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford on Monday 4 January.
Brian Pinker, 82, who was the first person to receive his vaccination from OUH Chief Nursing Officer, Sam Foster, said: “I am so pleased to be getting the COVID vaccine today and really proud it is one that was invented in Oxford.”
