Sleep Service

The sleep service has been offered since 1976 and is currently headed by Dr Allen. The team offers a complete diagnostic service for sleep problems. Four technical staff undertake a wide range of investigations from simple home studies to complex hospital based recordings of brainwave activity where technicians are present throughout the night. These investigative facilities allow us to manage all aspects of sleep problems such as sleep disordered breathing / sleep apnoea, other causes of excessive daytime sleepiness e.g. narcolepsy, phase shift and unusual events that occur in the night such as sleep movements and sleep talking. There are 4 dedicated sleep clinics per week supported by technical and administrative staff. A 24 hour helpline is available to ensure continuity of care.
