Wirral CAMHS Sleep Service will be accepting referrals from Paediatricians and following an initial assessment we hope to offer:

  • Comprehensive and supportive sleep assessment and intervention.

  • Consultation and advice to colleagues within partner agencies including Community Paediatrics, School Nurses, Health Visitors and Social Care.
  • Sleep Advice leaflets including examples of social stories –  available to download from  www.Mymind.org.uk
  • Training

If you have a chid with a Learning Disability, or a child who has either Autism Spectrum Condition (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)  on the Wirral and you are struggling with your child’s sleep, speak to your paediatrician about a referral to Wirral CAMHS Sleep Service.

If you are a professional on the Wirral and would like The Wirral CAMHS Service Team to offer a consultation please contact 0151 514 2521 and ask to speak to one of the sleep counsellors.
