Excessive daytime sleepiness in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea and narcolepsy has a significant impact on patients’ health, putting them at risk of dangerous situations (e.g. while driving) and can affect their general mood, causing depression. It can also impact on relationships and activities of normal daily living. Despite this high unmet need, sleep medicine is a relatively under-developed and under-recognised area in the UK, with the management of patients limited to a small number of specialist centres.
Reporting to the overall Medical Director for UK/Ireland, the Medical Director Sleep, is responsible for the development and delivery of the UK/Ire Medical Affairs strategy and programs that support the successful development and commercialisation of a portfolio of products in the sleep medicine franchise.
