My Asthma Consultant referred me Harefield Hospital because sleep studies showed Cat 2, borderline Cat 3 Sleep Apnea. I seen the Consultant at Harefield who prescribed a CPAP machine to aid oxygen levels whilst sleeping.
It appears there are very few hospitals/PCTs who will supply these machines and places like Harefield get many patients referred from outside region and, consequently, have a long waiting list for issue. Patients seen in June are only getting them now.
As my quality of sleep is pretty crap, I have decided, in conjunction with discussing it wit Harefield, to purchase my own but they do cost around Â£500 - Â£600 but to improve my quality of life, it is worth the cost.
