Hello everyone,

I am absolutely elated to have passed the interview and phychometrics with VTEC and I have w medical coming up on Thursday with a view of starting the driver course the following Monday. I suffer with a condition known as sleep apnoea and I am hoping someone who is a driver and suffers with t themselves can offer some clarity on what the RSSB guidelines are to the condition. I currently work as a train guard but I was diagnosed with the condition after I was appointed. I use a CPAP regularly to aid sleep - is this something I should be worried about pre train driver medical?

Many thanks in advance.
