About the London Bridge Sleep Centre

The London Bridge Sleep Centre at London Bridge Hospital specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. 

Our leading specialists provide rapid assessment and intervention in a world-class environment and deliver privacy, dignity and respect to every patient experiencing a sleep disorder. 

Sleep disorders can be grouped according to behaviours, problems with natural sleep-wake cycles, breathing problems, difficulty getting to sleep or how tired you feel during the day. Patients may present with a number of symptoms including dry throat, excessive fatigue or sleepiness, snoring, insomnia, inability to wake or any nocturnal parasomnias.
