Sleepstation: Free NHS Support for Patients with Insomnia

We are pleased to be able to offer a new, free service for patients at Jesmond Lower Gosforth.

Sleepstation is a clinically proven sleep improvement programme that can benefit people with even severe insomnia.

This new service is free for patients at all practices in our Jesmond Lower Gosforth Primary Care Network (PCN), and our neighbouring PCN, North Gosforth.

What Sleepstation does

The aim is to help people fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, lifting people’s mood and improving their general wellbeing.

There is no medication or equipment – it’s simply an online course where experts give you the knowledge, tools, and confidence to control your sleep.

Following an initial assessment of your own individual needs, a tailored plan will be created to help you overcome sleep problems for good. Most people who follow their Sleepstation programme sleep better after three or four sessions.

Who it can help

The programme is designed specifically for people with insomnia. It uses a clinically proven form of cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTi).

It also produces long-lasting effects for most people.

Since finishing Sleepstation my head’s back in the game! I feel normal again and I’ve got a dog. I’d always wanted a dog but until now I’d never had the motivation and energy to get one.

Read Sandra’s story has lots of personal stories of people who have benefited from the course.
