Statistics from

The development of the Cape Triage Score (CTS) has recently been described.1 The CTS was launched across the Western Cape of South Africa on 1 January 2006. However, as with any work in progress, time delays between submission and appearance of an article mean that development will have occurred: this is the case with the CTS, and the final version is significantly different from that published.

The first meeting of the South African Triage Group takes place in June 2006, with a view to producing a national tool, developed and suited for the South African healthcare system. We are actively seeking comments and input in the development process, as the CTS is a dynamic tool, and encourage readers of this journal to provide feedback.

The final version of the CTS is available on the website ( Any comments, feedback, or observations would be very welcome.
