Whilst most patients we see with this complaint are simple snorers, there is a recognised risk that a proportion will be suffering from a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. This can potentially lead to further health issues later in life so it is worth investigating and treating if possible.
This is why The ENT Consultancy has set up The Sleep Clinic.
As part of a 60-minute clinic appointment, under the care of Consultant ENT Surgeons and Specialist Nurses, patients undergo a detailed assessment including a consultation, sleep quality questionnaires and clinical examination including flexible nasendoscopy. We will endeavour to help you understand why you snore, consider if you have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and advise what further investigations and interventions will be of most benefit to you.
We often find that the majority of our patients also require a sleep study. We have teamed up with a company who produce a state-of-the-art device allowing you to perform a sleep study in the comfort of your own home after your consultation. This provides us with data comparable to that of a conventional hospital-based study and helps determine if you are suffering from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
This clinic does not require a consultation from your GP and please see below for associated costs:
