Sleep clinics

Are sleep clinics available on the NHS or privately?

Will the NHS support and fund a request from a patient for a referral to sleep clinic or can I self refer?

Is there a criteria for referral and a waiting time in London?

I look forward to hearing from you

Thank you,

Re: Sleep clinics

Thank you for your question Lorretta.

There are numerous NHS sleep clinics in the UK, to which you would need to be referred by your GP. The nature of your sleep problem would dictate the waiting time as different types of sleep disorders require different investigations. Your GP should know how to refer you to the appropriate local sleep clinic.
