The Trust runs Heatherwood Hospital, Frimley Park and Wexham Park Hospital in Slough.

That was an increase of one compared to the 384 that had been recorded at the same point on Friday, and the first death in six days.

Those who died were among 3,699 deaths recorded across the South East, which is the fifth-worst affected of England's seven NHS regions after London and the midlands.

Daily death counts are revised each day, with each case backdated to the actual date of death.

This means some of the deaths that were first recorded in the latest period may actually have taken place days earlier.

NHS England guidance states: "Confirmation of Covid-19 diagnosis, death notification and reporting in central figures can take up to several days and the hospitals providing the data are under significant operational pressure."

Only deaths that occur in hospitals where the patient has tested positive for Covid-19 are recorded, with deaths in the community excluded, such as those in care homes.
