SnoreYawnWarn – What’s it all about?

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Snore Yawn Warn is an international public health campaign initiated by the British Society of Pharmacy Sleep Services.

It’s free, open to all and it’s about snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea / Apnea (OSA).

SnoreYawnWarn stands for:

  • 1

    Snoring – Don’t trivialise it – it’s no joke

  • 2

    Yawning – Do you suffer excessive sleepiness when you should be awake?

  • 3

    Warning – These are warning signs of sleep apnoea / apnea – seek help!


Snoring is routinely dismissed as a joke when it’s anything but:

  • for the partner
  • for the snorer

We believe the time has come to STOP the exploitation of snorers by businesses interested only in profiting from snorers’ misery.

SnoreYawnWarn is about the PATIENT.

Snoring may be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnoea / apnea – a life threatening condition.

This is your opportunity to ‘Bang the metaphorical drum’.
