See your Pharmacist to Stop Snoring
When sleep-trained: they can help you stop snoring, screen you for sleep apnoea, and direct you to appropriate care.
Why do Anything About Snoring?
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
Snoring is often seen as a joke.
But did you know that the snorer with untreated sleep apnoea can expect to:
Die 20 years sooner1
than the average lifespan, independent of age, sex and weight?
The sleep-trained pharmacist understands snoring isn’t funny.
They know snoring means you are:
- Sleeping apart
- Experiencing relationship disharmony
- Perhaps have no holidays because of enforced sleep disruption when sharing a hotel room
- May fear travelling due to concern over falling asleep during long journeys on public transport and the consequent ridicule and embarrassment
You deserve valid help.
Around 40% of the UK report regular snoring2
How Can Pharmacists help?
Screening, Recognising and Signposting
The sleep-trained pharmacist will:
- Assess your snoring and contributory factors
- Screen you for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) and relevant comorbidities
- Discuss evidence-based help that may extend your healthy life
- Connect you with the appropriate NICE recommended treatment3
Benefits & Outcomes
You will be:
- Assessed by a sleep-trained professional
- Screened for symptoms of OSA
- Signposted appropriately
You will know:
- Why you snore
- What to do about it
- Where to go to stop
You will receive a comprehensive, actionable, personal report.
And if you’re sleepy when you should be awake (hypersomnolent) you may ask the pharmacist to bring this to your GP’s attention.

Designed for Distanced Delivery #ddd
We created our software with distanced delivery in mind. While face-2-face assessment would be ideal, circumstances (and covid19) may not permit.
So our online services are: "Designed for Distanced Delivery" meaning you can offer help via Zoom, Teams, Meet etc. as you and your patient prefer.
