Working with an expert like Professor Jason and being able to offer a personalised service such as the Sleep Clinic is a fantastic added benefit for our customers and a way we can really help everyone enjoy that all important good night’s sleep.”
The new Sleep Clinic service is also available at a dedicated section of the Slumberdown website where customers experiencing sleepless nights and want to take advantage of Ellis’s expertise will be required to answer a number of simple sleep related questions, such as What time do you go bed? How long does it take you to get off to sleep? If you were free to plan your day what time would you go to bed?

He said: “We know that good quality sleep is fundamental to our long-term health and wellbeing and yet many of us suffer from a whole host of problems. These problems at night can affect our daily performance and this creates a vicious cycle of poor nights followed by poor days. This service is an opportunity for us to help guide you on some simple things you can do to improve your sleep and where you can get help if you have a more persistent problem.”
