Harley Street Sleep Clinics
Sleep clinics provide diagnosis, management and treatment for disorders of sleep. There are many ways in which sleep can be disrupted, or it can be extensive in a way that disrupts waking life. There are a number of diagnostic tools that can be implemented in the diagnosis, some of which require a person to attend overnight in order for their sleep to be monitored over a long period. Sleep clinics often consist of Gps, diagnostic technicians and Psychiatrists as sleep disorders can be both physiological and psychological in nature.
After six years of undergraduate medical training these experts received focused training in general medicine and diagnostics and are members of the Royal College of Physicians or Psychiatrists, specialising in disorders of sleep.
There are a number of common presentations to a sleep clinic, including sleep apnoea, excessive sleeping, insomnia, night terrors, sleep walking or talking.
Those who visit a sleep clinic are often suffering with a disorder or disruption to their sleeping pattern that requires diagnosis, management and medication.
