We are based within the William Quarrier Scottish Epilepsy Centre which is an independent hospital, which provides assessment services to patients throughout Scotland in partnership with the NHS.
We provide flexible, person-centred, in-patient care for people who pose significant diagnostic challenges and for those who have complex physical, psychological and social needs. Along with the existing epilepsy assessment we now offer diagnostic testing for a wide range of sleep disorders in these specialist groups, including:
- Nocturnal epilepsy
- Psychological sleep problems
- Sleep breathing disorder
- Movement disorders
These assessments can include full Polysomnography, Mean Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT) and Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing (MWT). We can also provide these patients with full 23 channel EEG and Video Telemetry testing for seizure detection and will soon have the capability to carry out full PSG with an extended 23 channel EEG montage. All sleep assessments are carried out in accordance with the AASM guidelines.
Along with our specialist medical and support team at the SEC, we have an experienced sleep physiologist who is certified by the Board of Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (BRTP).
