Mr Oko qualified in medicine in 1986 and undertook his specialist training in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery at St Mary’s and Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London. He worked with Charles Croft at The RNTN&E where he developed an interest in OSA in the early 90’s. Formerly Clinical Lecturer in ENT Surgery at the University of Glasgow, in 2005 he was appointed Consultant ENT Surgeon and Clinical Lead for the Sleep Apnoea Service at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT). Since founding the Sleeping Disorders Centre at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire in 2006, Mr Oko has gone on to open satellite clinics at Johnson Hospital in Spalding and at 150 Harley Street. His pioneering sleep service at ULHT was the recipient of the NHS East Midlands Healthcare Award for service transformation in 2008, and in 2011 the Middle East Hospitals award for respiratory excellence in recognition of his work on raising awareness of sleep apnoea in the region. As a member of the Department of Health’s Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Working Group, Mr Oko is actively involved in highlighting the risks associated with undiagnosed sleep apnoea, and in campaigning for better research and facilities for the condition.
