The 0-19 School Nursing and Health Visiting Service accepts referrals of children aged 2-5 years (pre-school) for specialist sleep support.
Many of the staff have received training to give advice and tips.
There are also a small number of specialist sleep practitioners in the service. They accept referrals from professionals or other health visitors once they have undertaken the basic sleep hygiene work.
Referrals for sleep intervention can be made via the Early Years Partnership Process or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Parents can self-refer to their own health visitor by ringing 0114 3053224 – more information can be found on the hospital website.
