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.
