Sleep disorder centre


Making a referral

We accept referrals from GPs and health professionals.

GP referrals

All NHS GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS). Referrals sent by email or post from NHS GPs will not be processed.

Non GP referrals

All other referrals must be made by a consultant, and sent to us by:

  • letter, please address to 'the sleep consultant' or a specific sleep consultant
  • email

Referral criteria

We will consider referrals for the assessment of hypoglossal nerve stimulation to treat obstructive sleep apnoea.

We don't accept referrals:

  • from patients
  • for primary insomnia, these should be referred to the insomnia clinic at University College London Hospital Trust 
  • for snoring without sleepiness or apnoeas, these should be referred to our ear, nose and throat (ENT) service

Urgent referrals

We process referrals urgently if the patient's occupation is a driver or for any occupations where excessive sleepiness is of concern.

We prioritise patients whose sleep behaviours have caused or have the potential to cause serious harm to themselves or others.

Please use the normal referral process.
