Safety Project

Welcome to the UK National Tracheostomy Safety Project.  

Our goal is to improve the safety and quality of care for patients with tracheostomies and laryngectomies through education. We’ve collaborated with key stakeholders in tracheostomy care and developed these freely accessible resources, supported by online learning developed with the Department of Health. We’ve worked with the Global Tracheostomy Collaborative since 2012 to improve care for patients and their families around the world.

We have collaborated with key global organisations to develop specific guidance for staff and patients during the Covid-19 pandemic.
