We are a highly skilled team of nursing and medical staff, specialist in the triage, assessment and treatment of Oncology and Haematology patients undergoing treatment.
We are a Same Day Emergency Care (SDEC) department and see a variety of patients with side effects or complications of their treatment.
If patients require hospital admission, we admit directly from the Combined Triage Assessment Unit to the wards.
The Combined Triage Assessment Unit is located at Entrance 24, Level 1 at the Royal Derby Hospital.
The nearest car park to CTAU is car park 6. Free parking is provided to all those who have at least 3 pre-planned appointments within a month and for an overall period of at least 3 months. These tickets need to be stamped at reception.
The Combined Triage Assessment Unit is using patient feedback to improve our patients experience during their visit.
Improvements to service:
The team will continue to monitor the patient experience surveys and try to act on your comments where we can. We will also continue to measure our waiting times.
