The British Sleep Society (BSS) is a professional organisation for medical, scientific and healthcare workers dealing with sleeping disorders. We are also here to help sleep practitioners in the private field. We are a registered British charity and our ultimate aim is to improve public health by promoting education and research into sleep and its disorders.

This site caters for anyone with a passion for and interest in sleep and sleep disorders, including our professional membership, lay public and media.

But much of the site’s content is only available to BSS members, so please click the link above to find out how you can join us!
