Sleep, the unmet need…
Whether you are suffering from sleep ‘issues’ that are disturbing your day to day life & relationships or struggling with the demands of a travel filled career, the CHHP sleep clinic can help overcome sleep issues and optimise your sleep for improved health and performance.
The CHHP sleep clinic delivers a holistic service for the investigation and treatment of insufficient or unrefreshing sleep.
Sleep apnoea affects 1 in 20 adults and causes sleep disruption along with daytime tiredness; partners often notice loud snoring and breath holding. We use state of the art equipment to diagnose and treat sleep disorders including sleep studies conducted in your own home.
Insomnia is one of the leading causes of poor sleep and is managed with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT-I) which has been shown to be the most effective treatment. Alongside CBT-I we monitor sleep efficiency using wristwatch sleep monitors.
This part of the service is unique to CHHP and aims to improve the sleep and performance of any individual who aspires to improve their quality of life. Clinical review, lifestyle coaching, sleep monitoring and diagnostics are combined to deliver a personalised plan for achieving more effective and restorative sleep.
Consultations are one hour initially and are available on request with Dr Jim Brown, our sleep specialist.

We spend around a third of our lives asleep and until recently it was thought that sleep was merely a state of suspended animation. Recent research however shows that many processes essential to wellbeing occur during sleep including consolidation of memories, connecting abstract ideas and removing toxins from around the brain.
Society is in the grip of a ‘sleep crisis’ owing to our connected 24hr lifestyles. Chronic lack of refreshing sleep has been linked to elevated risk of heart disease, diabetes, depression, cognitive decline and shortened life expectancy.
High performance individuals including elite athletes and corporate executives are increasingly paying attention to their sleep regime to ensure they deliver in their daytime activities. Optimal sleep is the best way to improve life quality and efficiency within a short period.
