Sleep Medicine
Private General Practitioner

In addition to my role as an independent sector GP I have a special interest in problems of sleep.

The benefit of a GP managing sleep complaints is that they are assessed from a broad perspective. Many sleep problems are connected, or even caused by, other health issues, for example depression.

I aim to diagnose the problem and either help the patient resolve the problem or, if necessary, refer directly to specialists/ therapists with who I have built up professional connections.

Typical sleep problems are insomnia (difficulty getting sleep), sleep apnoea (sleep breathing problems), parasomnias (such as sleep walking), circadian rhythm disorders (timing of sleep), movement disorders and excessive sleep (the hypersomnias).
