The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and National Patient Safety Agency have issued a field safety notice on some of their positive airway pressure devices including continuous positive airway pressure and non-invasive ventilation. The details of the safety notice can be found here.

The trust's sleep and ventilation services are responding and contacting patients as appropriate. 

If a patient contacts you about the recall, please advise them to contact their sleep and ventilation service:

  • Royal Free Hospital: 020 7472 6623

Patients should only contact our sleep and ventilation service if they are already under the care of the RFL.
