My name is Mike and I am the Patient Link for the sleep unit.

We have two children, both of whom have ‘flown the nest’ and are out in the wide world earning their living.

I worked for a major international company for 34 years, 20 of which were spent at sea in the Merchant Navy.  I also worked in the Middle East for a number of years before returning to the UK.

My wife and I have a smallholding on which we raise Sheep.

I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnoea nearly three years ago and can only commend the Sleep team at Yeovil Hospital for the care they take of their patients.
