Sleep Clinic

We provide a clinical service throughout New Zealand to shiftworkers in association with the doctors and health professionals from The Sleep Well Clinic.

Consultations

Depending on the nature of your sleep problem you will either see an occupational therapist experienced in managing sleep problems or one of the specialists at the Sleep Well Clinic who have long-standing special interest in sleep medicine, and have received special training in this field.  

Sleep Test

The Sleep Well Clinic staff perform a wide range of home sleep tests for sleep apnoea, sleep/wake cycles, restless legs, and other sleep disorders. Not all patients need a test, but when indicated, the test will help select the best treatment.
