What provisions have been made in your commissioing area to increase facilities to ensure the timely diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS)
I refer to your letter of 12 April 2011 to Kevin Orford (Chief Executive, NHS East Midlands) concerning Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome (OSAS). Your letter has been passed to me and I have been asked to provide a response.
I can confirm in accordance with S.1 (1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) that NHS East Midlands does not hold the information that you have requested.
However, Section 16 of the FOIA places upon us a duty to provide as much help and assistance as possible. You should therefore direct your query to our constituent NHS organisations. The following link to our website will enable you to do this:
I hope that this information is of use. If you are dissatisfied with the way in which we have dealt with your request you can ask us to review our decision by writing to:-
Mr Moosa Patel
Director of Corporate Affairs
NHS East Midlands

If at the conclusion of any review you remain dissatisfied you may complain to the Information Commissioner who can be contacted at:-
