Sadly, we can confirm that two patients – a man and a woman - who were being cared for at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital, and had tested positive for COVID-19, have died.

The patients, who died 15th March 2020, were aged 82 and 78 respectively and both had underlying health conditions.

Both families have been informed and our thoughts and condolences are with them at this difficult and distressing time.
