The OSA Partnership Group

The OSA Partnership Group is made up of individuals and organisations with an interest in the condition. It includes representatives from the commercial vehicle sector, clinicians, patient groups and those interested in health and safety at work.

The Group’s aims are to raise awareness of the symptoms of OSA, the availability of treatment to manage these symptoms and the implications of the condition if untreated.

As a result much of our campaigning involves working with driving organisations, transport trade bodies and sleep clinics to make the process of coming forward for treatment as straightforward as possible, particularly for those who drive for a living.

Our Partners Include:

Sleep Apnoea Trust Association (SATA)
British Lung Foundation (BFL)
Freight Transport Association (FTA)
Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA)
Sleep Research Centre, Loughborough University
Oxford Sleep Centre
National Obesity Forum
Men's Health Forum
Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO)
The Road Haulage Association

"I know from my clinical experience how reluctant vocational drivers are to seek medical help when they have a symptom that might lose them their livelihood, therefore they have to be assured that rapid diagnosis and treatment will get them back on the road quickly". Professor John Stradling.
