Meet the sleep medicine team

We offer a comprehensive children's (paediatric) sleep medicine service.

This is only possible through the provision of a skilled multidisciplinary team (a team made up of lots of different health professionals).

This allows us to tailor assessments and interventions in the most complex sleep disorders, to the individual child.
