The main services provided in the RSSC are the progressive care programme, domiciliary ventilation, specialist oxygen systems and the management of a wide range of both respiratory and non-respiratory sleep disorders.

In April 2012 Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was commissioned by the National Specialised Commissioning Team to provide the National Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT) service for adult patients.

Information about the management of other sleep disorders can be found in the Sleep Services area of the website, while information about the other Respiratory Support services we provide can be found in the Respiratory Support area.
