Hello every-one. I am delighted to let you know that our new BLF OSA charter has now been launched. This is a 10 point charter which outlines what needs to be done to tackle obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in the UK. In order to minimise the effect this treatable condition has on the nation’s health, the charter calls for improvement in key areas such as diagnosis and treatment for people living with OSA.
The BLF’s OSA charter also calls for improved screening, and more comprehensive and consistent access to sleep clinic diagnosis and appropriate treatment throughout the UK. The charter also calls on governments across the UK to make OSA a national priority. This reflects the need to improve the current levels of awareness of the symptoms and dangers of untreated OSA across a broad a range of people, from the public through to healthcare professionals.
