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.

SLEEP APNOEA

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.

  • Connect you with the appropriate NICE recommended treatment

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.
