How to refer a patient to the Sleep service?
For General Practitioners
SCI-store referral marked "FAO sleep service" (or similar), should suffice.
Your referral is triaged accordingly to us.
For colleagues within the hospital
In-patient review: See Rotawatch for our in-patient Respiratory referral email.
E-mail if referring Mon-Friday 0900-1700, unless a clinical emergency (if so, page the on call Respiratory Registrar).
Out-patient review: dictate a letter and ask your secretary to use the internal (electronic) referral system.
