Tracheostomy care is an important priority for many health care systems. We identified a lack of clinical ownership for non-cancer head and neck community tracheostomy patients. An application to NHS England led to a project to study the potential role of a TCP for non-cancer head and neck. The aims were (1) improve patient safety (2) reduce number of admissions and length of stay (3) identify patients suitable for decannulation.
