Sleep apnoea affects the way you breathe when you're sleeping. Patients with suspected sleep apnoea are referred by a GP or physician.
In our service we provide nurse led sleep apnoea clinics and respiratory clinics or home visits.
Our service does not include simple snoring or insomnia management.
The service is overseen by Respiratory and Sleep Physician Dr Andy Veale who visits every three months.
Clinical Nurse Specialists: Michelle Scott and Sarah Garrett
Exams and procedures:
A full assessment is provided in clinic and a sleep study performed at home if indicated. CPAP or BiPAP therapy commenced where indicated. Patients with complex sleep disorders or those who require BiPAP may be referred to tertiary services.
