This page has information about what to expect when you visit our sleep medicine department at Evelina London.
Assessment appointments for new patients in our children's sleep clinic are usually one hour long, with one of our senior members of the sleep team.
Appointments may be with more than one member of the team.
As we are a teaching hospital, students and visitors may be observing the team. We will always ask your permission for them to observe your appointment.
Observers are usually consultants from other hospitals and services gaining experience of children’s sleep problems. They may also include other professionals (eg specialist nurses, psychologists), doctors-in-training (‘junior doctors’) or medical students.
Experience gained in this way is an important part of training other doctors and healthcare professionals to look after children with sleep problems.
