"Sleep apnoea is under-recognised"

About: Barnet PCT

(as the patient),

Sleep Apnoea and Narcolepsy do not seem to be covered here.

Sleep is an underfunded area and many GPs have maybe 15 minutes on 'Sleep' during their training. Only 30% of sufferers of SA are diagnosed and it is less with Narcolepsy. Both conditions severely affect quality of life and lead to long term unemployment.

I spent 3 years with a sleep clinic and was undiagnosed as a Narcoleptic... sorry comment eh? Yet not one comment here in the search mode.
