Emergency care at UHDB Trust

Helipad at Royal Derby Hospital

We offer three emergency department (A&E) services:

  • Queen's Hospital Burton
  • Royal Derby Hospital
  • Children's emergency department at Royal Derby Hospital

We see approximately 200,000 cases every year and our aim is to provide compassionate care and the best outcome for all. 

In May 2015, Royal Derby Hospital’s Emergency Department was named the national winner of the CHKS Excellence in A&E award. Judges said they were “impressed by the Trust’s clear focus on patient experience and their ability to demonstrate compassionate care and good outcomes”.
