Subject:        Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

 

 

Request:   

  1. Does this Trust treat Obstructive Sleep Apnoea patients with CPAP when appropriate.
  1. What is the approximate number of patients currently treated with CPAP within this trust. If current number not available please provide most recent estimate available.

 

 

Response:

We do not run a Sleep Apnoea service in Bolton i.e. we do not issue CPAP machines. Patients who we diagnose with Sleep apnoea are referred as outpatient to the sleep service in Wythenshawe. Patients may come with their own machine to the hospital and use it here while treated for other conditions.
