Dear Simon,

Excess Deaths

Thank you for raising your concerns with us on excess deaths, I apologise for the time it has taken to respond. You have raised important points that we have now looked into, we also raised your concerns with ONS.

Today we published our review of excess deaths reporting. You may also be aware that last Friday ONS published a blog on how ONS measure expected and excess death.

With your permission we would like to publish your email of 18th January to us and this response on our website, is this something you would be happy for us to do?

Thank you once again for raising your concerns with us.

Kind Regards,

Ed Humpherson
