This page includes information about how to refer a patient to the Respiratory Sleep Unit at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Referral instructions 

You may refer patients to our department via:

  • a letter (addressed to 'Dear Sleep Consultant' or to a specific sleep consultant) using the address at the top of this page
  • emailing our inbox
  • Clinic letter with detailed information about the patient’s background, medical history and reason for referral to the Sleep Unit
  • If you are a GP – please use the NHS e-Referral Service (eRS)
We do not accept referrals directly from families. If you think your child has a sleep problem which may benefit from referral to our service, you should discuss with your GP or doctor in the first instance.
