Reporting data on deaths, which stand at 179 for Warrington, can be problematic and difficult because there are different sources that this information is pulled from and it’s not accurate to sum hospital deaths with care home deaths, for example, as deaths occurring in the hospital may not necessarily relate to a Warrington resident.
