Sleep Clinic Service Developments: Questions for Professionals

Closed 6 Dec 2021

Opened 19 Nov 2021


Local Authority commissioning officers meet regularly with the Together Trust, the provider of Sleep Tight Trafford, to review current performance and discuss potential developments for the service.  Through recent discussions with the Together Trust we have identified a number of changes which we believe will improve delivery of the sleep clinic.  We are keen to share our ideas with referrers into the Sleep Clinic, before we make any decisions.

Our proposals focus on the following areas:

  • A change to the tier system
  • A change to the length of a sleep clinic appointment
  • The removal of the requirement for a child / young person to have a melatonin prescription and thus remove the requirement to monitor any reduction in usage (this data has not been collated for 12 months+), and also referral by paediatrician/CAMHS consultant and diagnosis of Autism or ADHD (for current tier 3).
