One of the key roles of a trade body is to use its influence to drive change and this is often done in collaboration with other industry stakeholders. Driving change can take time but the keys to success are, of course, persistence, commitment and hard work.
One of the key issues SMMT has been a part of, that I’ve discussed before, is the sleep disorder, Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
SMMT first got involved in this issue back in late 2011; we’ve raised awareness across the industry and with policy makers, and persuaded various bodies to change their guidance to doctors. So last night it was pleasing to see the issue covered in detail on prime-time television, as the Trust Me I’m a Doctor series ran a piece on OSA.
