Sleep Apnoea

Sleep your way to better health and wellbeing


For many, getting to sleep or staying asleep can be difficult and causes many issues mentally and physically. It’s common that sleep apnoea a sleep related breathing disorder is the cause of poor sleep. 


At Bendigo UFS we are trained sleep physicians who are passionate about helping patients with improving their sleep pattern. We’re so passionate because many of us have experienced this too. 


Sleep Apnoea is a serious condition that causes excessive daytime drowsiness, poor concentration and memory and over time contributes to other physical and mental conditions. 


Patients will often be aware they are snoring or wake up choking because their airway is narrow or becomes relaxed. To truly know if patient has sleep apnoea, a sleep study needs to be undertaken. 


IMPORTANT: Due to demand we are only able to support existing patients. Please complete the ‘Make an enquiry form’ to go on our waitlist.

A sleep study at Bendigo UFS Pharmacies is a great alternative to having to spend the night in a sleep clinic or hospital.
