Improved Speed & Convenience
WE OFFER A 2 WEEK TIMESCALE WITH 1 APPOINTMENT FOR DIAGNOSIS TO TREATMENT
Whilst the NHS is and has been a reliable public service it can regularly take 6 individual appointments over a period of 6 months to diagnose and treat underlying health issues that may cause poor sleep.
- Appointment with GP - referral to sleep clinic
- Initial appointment at sleep clinic
- Collection of equipment to analyse sleep
- Return of equipment to analyse sleep
- Appointment at sleep clinic for consultation and diagnosis
- Appointment at sleep clinic for treatment and any associated training
Increased accuracy due to new technology
We offer greater than 98% compared with 85% or less.
Typical technologies used to detect and monitor sleep disturbances use nasal cannula and/or chest belts, to monitor respiration. Patients can find these are uncomfortable and are at a greater risk of being displaced during sleep. We use WatchPAT to measure sleep-disordered breathing. As WatchPAT does not require nasal cannula or chest belts failure rates are less than 2% (1), (2), compared with other home oximetry devices available in which signal failure can be as high as 15% (3).
We care about you
We offer continuous support, regularly interacting with our customers
Normal practice is to diagnose and, treat an underlying condition and with the exception of an annual check up, you are effectively left to get on with it. There is no real support or interaction between visits, so how do you really feel or understand how you are doing?
It can be a miserable experience as each appointment requires time, travel and associated expense.
Coupled with this the UK government announced on 30 June 2018 that the NHS would no longer support certain procedures some of which are associated with snoring.
