The Sleep Disorders Centre (SDC) is one of the largest centres of adult sleep medicine in Europe. With consultants in respiratory medicine, neurology, neurophysiology, psychiatry, neuropsychiatry, and clinical psychology. Its caseload is extremely broad, covering all aspects of sleep medicine.

The SDC sees approximately 18,000 patients a year, and receives approximately 5000 new referrals per year. These include patients with sleep-disordered breathing, parasomnias, narcolepsy and other central hypersomnias, sleep-related movement disorders, nocturnal epilepsy, and sleep disorders associated with neurological and psychiatric conditions. In addition to the consultant staff, the serviced is supported by two clinical fellows and a highly experienced team of 25 sleep technologists.
